Met Back Bay, soon launching a sister restaurant on Nantucket called Met on Main, has brought a bit of summer to our steamy city. Starting on Father's Day (which is this Sunday ... better buy a cheap tie fast!), they'll launch a BBQ menu complete with live grill on their patio. Liquid cheddar, anyone?
On the terrace menu:
CHARRED PORK RIBS
sweet & sour Korean BBQ, grilled scallion pesto
MUSTARDY LAMB RIBS
Colorado-style potato salad
DOUBLE DAD DOG
2 Kobe hot dogs, liquid cheddar, chili, Sauerkraut
NORTH END ITALIAN SUB
Spicy Hot Sausage, peperonata
Sounds like a great Sunday diversion for dads who prefer ribs and sausage to yet another packet of undershirts and wholesome family brunches. The menu lasts all summer long.
Of course, if you'd rather take matters into your own hands this weekend or in the future, please see our backyard-grilling slideshow before setting yourself on fire.
