This place was amazing, I went here with a group of friends for a nice dinner and it did not upset. It would also be perfect for a date due to its calm, quiet atmosphere. I'd recommend the veal scallopini it was amazing.

So good. Everything I've had for brunch at Metropolis has been perfect. When I lived near by, I was there most every Sunday. All these years later, it's a bi-annual visit. Coming here makes me love and miss Boston all the more.

The Metropolis is small but has a stylish interior. It was difficult to book as it is a popular spot. The two of us started by sharing a Kale and Brussel Caesar which was interesting, but not particularly exciting. We followed this with risottos, one...More
