Good Taste: The Metro’s Saffron Risotto

A seafood-laden dish brightens diners’ days at The Metro Wine Bar & Bistro.


The Metro Wine Bar and Bistro opened near NW 63rd and Western in 1988, and ever since has been quietly, skillfully impressing diners with an atmosphere of casual class and dishes like this colorful beauty.

The Saffron Risotto features shrimp and Maine diver scallops sautéed to perfection and combined with sun-dried tomatoes, red bell pepper, green beans and a little ginger, all enlivening a creamy rice dish that practically glows with the yellow color distinctive to its namesake spice. Ask your server about a wine pairing – their selection, like their dining experience as a whole, is impeccable.
