We have eaten several times at the Pop up Restaurant that is at the Metropole (also called Zest). They recently catered our daughter's wedding reception. The food is fresh, flavorful, healthy, and beautiful. The staff are friendly, honest, helpful, and professional.

Hi. Their menu board shows them open for Mother's Day brunch but no price is posted. It appears they are also open for Saturday dinner on an a-la-carte basis.
