Downtown’s Metropole, located in 21c Museum Hotel, is giving back to the community this week with a special prix fixe menu that will donate a portion of the proceeds from each dish to No Kid Hungry, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending child hunger. The menu will be available from October 22–25.
According to No Kid Hungry, one in seven children in the United States experience food insecurity. Upon learning about its mission, Metropole’s executive chef David Kelsey wanted to get involved and raise money and awareness for the organization.
“The art of preparing and sharing food with each other is a very special gift, and I wanted to make this a week-long effort to maximize the potential of raising money for No Kid Hungry,” Kelsey says.
The prix fixe menu features various dishes, including old favorites and special appearances, from the restaurant’s famous burnt carrot salad to fried chicken to a meatloaf made with Yukon gold potato puree.
“I wanted a menu that made you feel like a kid again—those dishes that transport you back to your home kitchen,” Kelsey says. “The fried chicken is definitely my favorite menu item, and comes with a classic Mornay sauce.” The brownie sundae is another one of his favorites, which will appear on the dessert menu.
Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant or visiting the event page, which includes additional menu details.
