Now in our 6th year, The Met has become a staple for downtown Lima. Since its humble beginning as a wine bar, The Met has transformed itself time and time again by continually expanding and evolving to meet the needs of Lima and the surrounding communities. We’re at a point now where we offer a full range of culinary, drink, and event options for both lunch and dinner. In a short 6 years, The Met has more than doubled its indoor seating, added outdoor seating, increased the size of its kitchen, and added private event/large party rooms to our historic building on the corner of Main and North.
Thanks to the overwhelming response from the Lima community, The Met has its sights on further growth as we’re set to open a brand-new space in the Summer of 2019 in what was previously Nitza’s. In this space, we’ll offer another full kitchen, full bar, indoor and outdoor seating to give the community even more dining options. But don’t think we’re going to stop there! We will continue to grow in Downtown Lima as we have our sights set on the opening of Lima’s first brewery in 2020!
Of course, we could never have done all of this if it wasn’t for the one of a kind atmosphere that our employees and staff have cultivated over the years. The Met strives to be that great third place. The Met has ushered in the renewal of the neighborhood gathering establishment that, to many, is a nostalgic remnant of time too long ago to remember. Here, we celebrate our history, diversity and the people of the City of Lima, Allen County and the surrounding counties that play, live and work in our City. We’re a restaurant that strives to bring well-paying jobs back to the city of Lima and fosters a sense of wonder and creativity that attracts some of the brightest and forward-thinking people that the region has to offer. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the revitalization of Downtown Lima and hope that the surrounding community continues to drink the same “Kool-Aid” as we do in believing that Downtown Lima is truly a great place to live, work, play, and of course, dine!
