Pairing good food with fine wine can break a budget faster than a balloon payment. But thanks to Metrovino’s high-tech wine-preserving system—holding 90 well-chosen domestic and international wines—you can savor each course in increments as small as two-ounce pours, ideal for adventure and affordability. But don’t call Metrovino a wine bar. It’s a seriously creative dinner house, marred only by its sterile, hotel-lobby atmosphere. Look for the Noah’s ark of charcuterie boards: a plank of wood parading the animal kingdom, with dips into the ocean and flights into the sky. The bar burger is reason enough to visit: a five-inch-tall triumph of rib eye–and–fontina engineering. Skip lunch and arrive early: Metrovino makes a limited number per night.
