Metropolis

$30 and under
Tapas / Small Plates
Metropolis has a chic, urban adult atmosphere where creativity is king. Lava lamps, abstract art and the clever fusion of food and drink await. More than 80 hand crafted martinis, 20 single malt scotches, a sophisticated winelist and an everchanging assortment of fabulous things to eat are offered. Metropolis offers more than 50 "small plates" (the literal translation of "tapas"), some lighter, some heavier, some hot, some cold, and from there the fun begins.
Between the two of them, Mark and Matt of Metropolis have over 30 years of restaurant experience in Corolla, and they pride themselves on making your experience at Metropolis a memorable one. Open year round for dinner. Metropolis is a favorite of locals and those in the restaurant industry.
Come and see what so many people are talking about. Metropolis...just like in "the city"...but better!

    This was truly our favorite stop in the Outer Banks! Every morsel was worthy of savoring! I can’t say enough about the warmth and interaction with the hosts and chef! The list of martinis and cocktails were also amazing! The “Perfect Manhattan” stole the show!

    Metropolis is spectacular. Matt and Mark, owners, are awesome. At least one of them work the floor or kitchen nightly. Cocktails are always special with something new frequently. Food is as good as you can get anywhere, and I am even talking about the big city chefs. Highly recommend Metropolis.

    We are fans of Metropolis. It's tapas style - so smaller portions - which allows you to try several dishes. I think their dishes are creative. The drinks are delicious!
