In the heart of the culturally inclined neighborhood between Ponte della Musica and the MAXXI, smack in front of the Teatro Olimpico, opens Metropolita, the Capital’s newest hot spot. Cocktails are the muse of this mixology bar, with drinks hailing not just from Italy but from all over the world. Each cocktail is carefully crafted with painstakingly chosen, high-quality ingredients, ready to be paired with Metropolita’s Mediterranean dishes: Galician-style octopus, Wild Alaskan salmon tartare, Fassona beef carpaccio with a two-truffle sauce, chickpea hummus and crispy Sardinian bread pan cara- sau, Andalusian gazpacho, couscous, Caesar salad, and a “ Tuscan hot dog” (made with Chianina beef and Cinta Senese pork). Among the tempting desserts are ricotta and sour cherry pie and white chocolate passion fruit mousse. A DJ set, vertical garden, and even a rhino statue complete Metropolita’s playful, trendy mood.
