Kathy Sidell, the powerhouse behind the Metropolitan empire, has leaked more details about her forthcoming Nantucket restaurant, MET on Main. As we noted a couple weeks ago, this is the same restaurant that riled up a neighboring church, which feared that patrons might get rowdy and disturb parishioners. Luckily, Sidell's prayers have been answered and the restaurant will open as planned, complete with a tartare and raw bar as well as an outdoor patio modeled after the movie Casablanca. Oh, and a pancake bar, which we're pretty sure did not appear in the movie.
Per a release, the menu at Nantucket's MET will encompass Asian, Mexican, Polynesian, and American flavors with Nantuckets homegrown vegetables and the islands fresh local seafood. The tartare bar, meanwhile, will feature flavors that call to mind Sidell's fave tropical destinations. As for the pancake bar, there'll be savory and sweet toppings and "fillings that are unique to Nantucket." Yum yum! Like money?
Sidell's newest MET will open in June.
