Finally made it over to Doris Metropolitan last night. All I can say is WOW! I was really floored by this place. It really takes steak house to the next level. The food combines some unique Israeli flavors with top quality steaks and it really sets the bar high. I went with a group of guys and we tried the tuna tartar, steak carpaccio and the baladi eggplant. All three were outstanding, and the eggplant was so unique for a restaurant in New Orleans. Charred eggplant with tahini paste, tomato concasse and pine nuts. The only complaint I had was that it should have been served with some pita bread so I didn’t have to lick the bowl clean. The rest of my group had the Rib Eye, the Porterhouse, the Tenderloin and the steak of the day, the Hanger. One guy had the tuna and I had the fish of the day, a really nice seabass. Everyone really liked their entrees. One guy had the tenderloin the night before at Revolution and again here. He thought the one at Doris Metroopolitan was better. We had two bottles of a really good Israeli pinot noir from the Golan Heights. This place is really trendy, the crowd was hip and cool, the burgers coming out of the kitchen looked awesome. As a local, I like when a restaurant in the FQ doesn’t pander to tourists, but instead tries to succeed on their own terms. Yes, this is a restaurant that could be in any city (their other location is in Costa Rica), but that’s fine by me. I’ll definitely be back.
