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.
