As if the Houston food scene couldn’t get any tastier, the Bayou City can now dine on the famous eats of a New Orleans hotspot right in our own backyard.
Doris Metropolitan held a soft opening for their new Houston location on Thursday, November 30th, and they’re hoping to take your reservations this December.
About six hours closer than its cajun-city sister, the Houston location is opening at 2815 S Shepherd Drive.

The restaurant’s decor features a display of hand-cut hunks of meat on a pedestal, topped with a glistening chandelier.
According to their website, Doris Metropolitan brings diners “flavors and techniques that play on our Middle Eastern heritage to shine a spotlight on dry aged beef and the highest quality meats, which are offered alongside vegetable-forward appetizers, exotic and local seafood, a thoughtfully sourced caviar menu, and seasonal sides.”
Not only do they serve decadent dishes, they are also armed with a wide array of cocktails, curated wines and fine liquors.
Their dining room is reportedly complete with rows of wine and spirits, promising patrons their cups will never be half-empty after a meal at Doris Metropolitan.
Dinner is served every night from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
