The Met is really two different restaurants. Upstairs, it’s a clubby place with big leather booths and people in pinstripe suits eating pan seared scallops. Downstairs, it’s a bar where people eat burgers and watch the game. Neither level is particularly exciting, but they each serve their purpose, and in the summer it has one of the bigger sunken patios on Newbury Street.
