Repeat.”
The Met Kitchen focuses on Colorado ingredients and spirits while offering a variety of new flavors from Colorado and beyond. The updated space’s open kitchen makes diners feel like they’re part of the action while the comfortable seating areas allow small groups to sit side-to-side for more intimate meals and snacks.

Pair wine selections, specialty cocktails, or pints of beer with small and sharing platters, including barbecued Korean ribs or seared crab cakes.

These colorful beauties blend pink lobster poached in Maine butter, bright green avocado, pico de gallo and chipotle cream into two delicious corn tortillas. While many small plates like this are very tasteful, the large tables in the new space create a family-style dining atmosphere where guests can also linger on larger plates, like the rib dish. juicy, slow roasted beef that is served with grilled asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes.
