Indoor Parisian Street Cafe – I didn't know Cafe Metropolitain existed until I rode by one day on the bus and saw it. When I finally went in, I was blown away. The interior is huge and themed like a Paris street cafe, and painstakingly done. Very nice! Decent beer selection, but I still consider the Stumbling Monk the definitive spot for Belgian ales. Cafe Metro opens an hour earlier than the Monk, which makes it a better after-work spot. The sandwich I had was good, as was the hot pretzel with mustard. The place was practically empty on a weeknight, but hopefully that will change as folks find out about this new gem. They've also got a large, reservable party room and hold wine tastings daily. I will definitely be back, especially when I need a place to drink beer and do homework, meet friends, or take my co-workers after 5pm.
Best New Hangout On Capitol Hill – Wandered by with friends Saturday night and stopped into this new place. The interior was totally unexpected -- a Paris street scene and very elaborately done! We were greeted by a bartender passing by, who invited us to explore and sit wherever. It's a very large room with several distinct and themed areas. There's a beer garden up front which serves as the bar, a cafe/courtyard in the middle with tables scattered around a large tree and fountain, and a back room filled with cozy red furniture. They had a good crowd Saturday, an excellent selection of tap beers and inexpensive wine by the glass, and sufficient food and appetizers. The only thing missing is hard alcohol, which we were told is in the works. Bravo to Cafe Metropolitain for creating a very cool and comfortable atmosphere in which to hang out with friends. I'll definitely be back!
great to relax – I like being able to go to a casual atmosphere, and have a good glass of wine, instead of an overpriced glass that the restaurant got for a special price. Great place to enjoy imported wines and beers, I love the place.
