    The red wine flight is thoughtful, well selected, and a decent value- 3-3 oz glasses for $18. The ethereal sounding free classical music on Saturday night pulled me in.

    The cocktails are a better value than the wine and are delicious! The Metropolitan Martini is delicious, as is the Magnolia! Their cafe bites are very well done.

    On Fri & Sat evenings, the Met has live music, small plates & specialty cocktails that tie in with current exhibits 'that spur conversation about the art.' Great spot to end a tour during the winter.

    The portions are way bigger than you'd expect and the panzanella salad is amazing. I was surprised by how much I liked this place.

    The cheese plate and Elderberry mocktail are both very good!
