London, United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The recently reopened Met Bar at COMO’s sophisticated Metropolitan London injects new oomph into classic dishes and innovative cocktails, promising to entice fans of New British fare. Previously a members-only establishment, the Met Bar now opens its doors to all gastronomes from the early morning late into the night.
The bar refresh introduces seasonal stars like the potted shrimp appetizer, a buttery rich and spice-infused seafood stunner, and the complex ham hock and parsley terrine with a beetroot and pickled walnut salad. For mains, enjoy the deep and heady classic of Dedham Dale beef and Stilton pie, get an herby kick from Indian-influenced kedgeree cakes, or save room for drinks with a lighter lemon-poached monkfish.
After a tasty nibble or satisfying meal, settle in at the lava stone-topped bar for lavish libations like vintage champagne and bespoke chocolate elixirs. Whether it’s a berry-hued concoction or lychee-topped potion you crave, quality spirits and a rich combination of flavors make whiling the hours away seriously pleasurable.
Built for every mood thanks to a state-of-the-art “smart glass” wall, the space is bright and airy by day, then dark and intimate by night for those seeking a little mystery. No matter the time, take a minute to marvel at the corrugated cardboard relief by Giles Miller, the artist responsible for Stella McCartney’s pop-up store in Paris.
