Chef Shuffle at Mettle Sparks a Major Menu Revamp

Beef tongue tacos: out. Beef tongue banh mi: in.

Spencer Selvidge/EATX

Mettle's new chef Carson Symmonds released a significantly different new menu for the bistro, focused more on "international flavors." This means a lamb tikka masala starter and beef tongue banh mi. The menu at Bridget Dunlap's first restaurant project previously rotated quarterly, but often kept a number of the same items. Take a look at the brand new menu below.
