Middle Village’s newest eatery, Metronome Restaurant & Catering Hall, does not disappoint when it comes to hearty helpings of tasty New American cuisine. Whether stopping in for a casual dinner or planning an event or celebration, guests will experience traditional American fare with a contemporary twist.
To start, try the crab cakes in mango sauce. The tender crab cakes are baked to a crispy golden brown and topped with a sweet mango puree. Served over leafy greens, this light appetizer provides a taste of what is to come without leaving you stuffed before the main dish arrives.
For a main course, Ethan Chen, one of Metronome’s owners, explained that seafood is a house specialty and recommends the crusted filet of sole - a staff favorite that will satisfy the most particular palate. For those seeking a pasta dish, Metronome serves up traditional penne in a thick homemade vodka sauce topped with fresh parmesan and basil. Entrees are served with Metronome’s signature sides of house mixed vegetables and baked potato - truly a complement to any meal.
For a sweet finale, try the warm cinnamon crepe, filled with strawberries and bananas. Surrounded by generous dollops of whipped cream and topped with drizzled chocolate, it is no wonder the crepe is quickly becoming the restaurant’s most popular dessert selection.
Though if a slice of cake or a fresh pastry is your preference, the strategically placed dessert display (right by the door, so you will not be able to resist before leaving the restaurant) has something for everyone. From cheesecake to black forest, the succulent selections will leave your mouth watering, and another trip to Metronome is likely to be in your near future.
Metronome’s ultra-chic, mod d/cor coupled with friendly, welcoming service makes it a true standout in its neighborhood - the perfect spot for couples, families and groups of friends alike.
As the weather turns warmer, the outdoor garden caf/ opens for dining so that guests may enjoy the fare outside.
On Saturdays and Sundays, Metronome offers weekend brunch specials from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for only $10.95. What better way to embark upon a new dining experience? Visit Metronome today and treat yourself.
