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.

Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen
Darryl’s is a jazz bar that serves Southern classics like fried chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits.
Saloon is a speakeasy in Davis Square that’s so dark you might fall asleep in there (though probably not if it’s burlesque night).
