The Metropolitan Grill - Seattle, WA

My husband is a meat lover so for his birthday we took him to the Metropolitan Grill in downtown Seattle for dinner.  It's been at least 3 years since we've been there and I found that some things have changed, while others have stayed the same.

After we were seated, the waitress gave us a basket filled with sour dough and pumpernickel rolls.  I'm not a huge fan of the sour dough bread, but the pumpernickel wasn't bad.  (It doesn't compare to the Cheesecake Factory's bread, of course)  For an appetizer, we ordered a side dish of the Cedar Plank Roasted Wild Mushrooms ($12).  I was excited to try this dish because I love chanterelle mushrooms.  However, I was pretty disappointed as the mushrooms were dry and flavorless.  Also, the complimentary baked potato that came with my steak was a disappointment.  The baked potato itself was fine, but the choice of complimentary toppings was pretty sad.  We were offered cheese, sour cream, and butter.  The last time we were there, I remember they had a choice of chives and bacon bits.  What happened?  They definitely need to bring that back.  Onto the the star of the show -- the  STEAK.  I ordered an 8 oz. Filet Mignon ($45).  The meat was so tender, juicy, and rich (that's probably all the butter they use).  And it was still as good as I remembered it 3 years ago.  I would still recommend going to the Metropolitan Grill for the best steak in Seattle....just don't waste your money on the sides.
