MET Bethesda Celebrates Father's Day

From our friends at the MET Bethesda...

Dad Can Satisfy His Hunger with Dishes from the Wood-Fired Grill

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, MET Bethesda, known for its American fare, will celebrate Father's Day with two man-hungry specials. Exclusively during brunch service Dads can enjoy a Surf & Turf Benedict, beef filet, Maine lobster and poached egg, served on an English muffin with hollandaise and potatoes for $28 per person (excluding tax and gratuity.) Then, during brunch and dinner, a 42 oz. Prime Bone-In Ribeye that serves two people along with two one-and-a-half pound grilled Maine lobster, served with bacon wrapped scalloped potatoes and Brussels sprout slaw will be available and priced at $49 per person (excluding tax and gratuity.) These specials are available in addition to the restaurants a la carte brunch and dinner menus.

Known for its American fare cooked over an open wood-fired grill, Met Bethesda is both earthy and sophisticated, and the menu incorporates simple, fresh, high quality ingredients in every dish.  Additional menu items that Dad will fancy are Hand-Cut Buttermilk Biscuits with honey-maple butter, and Sidell’s signature Chicken Parmigiana - imagine Chicken Parmigiana disguised as a pizza - a generous 24 oz serving with 12-hour tomato sauce, served with a three cheese, mini Caesar salad. A selection of steaks from the wood-burning grill is also available and includes Prime Skirt Steak; Filet Mignon and a New York Strip. Each is served with Met hash browns and a Brussels sprout slaw.
