Grand Met Restaurant Review: The Grand Met doesn’t have to go far to exceed expectations for a hotel restaurant, particularly one located at an airport. True to form, the menu is priced on the high-side, but the offerings are surprisingly creative and carefully prepared. Inspiration is drawn from interpretations of various world cuisines including Indian, Japanese and Mexican. Starters range from blue crab and tuna tempura to Aztecan tortilla soup with smoked chicken, avocado, and queso blanco. The pan-roasted pork chop comes nicely seared with caramelized gnocchi, pancetta, baby beets and morel jus. The oven-roasted Colorado rack of lamb falls off the bone and is served with sweet potato mash, grilled artichoke, and tart cherry jus. A decent selection of wines by the glass and courteous, professional service round out the experience at this sleeper of a restaurant that tends to travel-weary diners in search of more than an over-priced burger and fries.
