This is a favorite lunch spot for the professional crowd but it's not for timid eaters: custom dry-aged mesquite-grilled steaks—arguably the best in Seattle—are huge and come with baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, or roasted root veggies. Even the veal chop is extra thick. Expertly prepared lamb, chicken, and seafood entrées are also on the menu. The Met's take on a steak house is either classic or a caricature, depending on how you take to the cigar-and-cognac vibe:
waiters wear tuxes, fixtures are made of brass, the 60-foot bar is made of dark green marble, and the crowd is composed of Seattle's relatively small population of movers and shakers.
