Bridget’s Birthday Bash {Metropolis Restaurant $50 Gift Card Giveaway}

Disclosure: This post is part of my week of giveaways.
I did not receive any compensation for this post.
The opinions below are pure Bridget and are fueled by my love of hummus and falafel.
Many thanks to Metropolis Cafe for donating the $50 gift certificate.

They hear us before they see us. The kids bound in the door and start running for the back room.  They love it there because there are no chairs, just bench seats and stools and plenty of room to flit around. They know us well enough to bring our drinks and a large hummus with extra pita, which we usually devour within minutes. I get one of the olives. The 6 year old gets the other.

The kids are fans of the grilled cheese, which isn’t your typical grilled cheese. Instead of sandwich bread they use pita and holy smokes it’s good!

Marshall and I both like the chicken kabob. The chicken is well-seasoned and served over basmati rice (my favorite). It also has grilled veggies on top and that broccoli? It’s my absolute favorite! I still haven’t figured out how they grill it and it doesn’t get mushy and it doesn’t get overly crisp.

We like the greek menu but we really love Thursday because on Thursday they also serve Indian food. We both fell in love with Indian food back in med school. There’s a funny story about that, but I’ll save it for another day. Marshall and I both really like the Chicken Tikka Masala or Chicken Makhni. Both of those dishes are creamy and spiced to perfection.

If you’re local and you’ve never been, it should be at the top of your list for the next time you go out to eat. If you’re not sure what to order, I’ll be happy to go along and help you out. 🙂 I actually wish I could take you all but since I can’t, I do have a $50 gift certificate for one of you to win!
