The name Métier is defined as an area of expertise, and that proves true in the extraordinary menu of acclaimed Chef Eric Ziebold’s luxurious, modern American tasting room. Métier showcases his witty sensibility in an intimate atmosphere. Diners first relax in a private salon with drinks and hors d’oeuvres before moving on to the elegant dining room for a sumptuous culinary experience.
