There’s something very chic and European about Metro. This elegant eatery at the recently renovated Benmore Gardens Shopping Centre is an attractive space, boasting one of Johannesburg’s smartest lounge bars. Downstairs there’s an airy dining area, where decent Italian-influenced food is served, while upstairs there’s a stylish, strikingly designed bar, all crisp creams and whites splashed with deep red. It’s a cosmopolitan venue, slightly over-priced for the area though compensating in terms of atmosphere, and attracts a crowd of youngish professionals. The bar is well stocked with South African wines and other goodies and they do a decent cocktail.
