Had dinner last night with a group of about 15 last night at Metro Bistro Cafe in the MiMo district of Miami - 7010 Biscayne Boulevard (adjacent to Karma Carwash).
Metro is all organic, although their wine selection is not.
Food was very good! They prepared a special menu for us. We started with an amuse-bouche of tuna tartar chopped with onions, on little crispy bread pieces. Absolutely fantastic. Then I had a salmon carpaccio - Sashimi-Grade Wild Caught Salmon, Shaved Organic
Fennel, Capers, Fleur de Sel & EVOO, it was delicious! They also offered Metro Salad: Organic Baby Arugula tossed with Organic Raspberry-Balsamic Vinaigrette, Warm Goat Cheese Crostini and Organic Chives, which was yummy, and finally, Grilled Sweet Breads: Served with Organic Lemon, Organic Parsley and Fleur de Sel. I'm a bit of a wimp but I tried the sweet breads and they were really, really good!
For my entree I had Steak Frites: Organic Grass-Fed Skirt Steak served with Organic
Chimichurri and Fries, which was relatively simple, presented attractively, and pretty darn good! I think people were happy with their Mahi entrees as well. For dessert there was a creme brulee that I enjoyed, as well as Gran Marnier Ice Soufflé, which was soft and creamy, although frozen - very good.
Metro is very small, so we sat outside. It was a really nice meal, and the staff were awesome.
