Restaurant Review: Met Bethesda

Restaurant+Review%3A+Met+Bethesda

Many Bethesda residents walk into Montgomery Mall’s food court planning on going to Chipotle or the Arclight Cinema upstairs. They may miss some of the restaurants surrounding these main attractions.

The Met Bethesda restaurant may not be as well-known as it neighbor, Arclight Cinemas, but it may be worth the same amount of visitors.

The upscale design of the Boston-based chain can catch a potential customer’s attention. The lighting, wood paneling and metal accents inside the restaurant give it a modern feel. Additionally, the staff is reasonably polite.

Unfortunately, the food did not initially prove adequate. The coffee ordered was lukewarm when it got to the table (in an admittedly timely manner), and it was not as strong as I expected.

My burrata and arugula salad did prove flavorful, however. The burrata cheese was surprisingly creamy, and the chicken I ordered as a topping was well-roasted and tasty.

Different parts of the room catch one’s eye. For instance, the elaborate martini bar, equipped with neon lights, multiple flat-screen televisions, and glasses situated at each stool is attention-grabbing.

The blown-up Martini Bar menu posted behind the bar was also striking, listing drinks with names such as “Pain Killer” and “The Cape Cod Dog”.

Overall, the restaurant is sufficiently good quality, though its food does not match up with its décor.
