Fine Freshness with a Modern Flair: Metro Fresh- Midtown

Metro Fresh has been in Midtown since 2005 by founder and owner Chef Mitchell Anderson.  The Midtown location is in the Trader Joe's shopping center next to Mellow Mushroom and the UPS Store off of Monroe Dr.  Think of it as a truly sophisticated and fresher version of a cafe with soups, salads, and sandwiches.  They also have a bar for coffees, desserts and wines.

 I had the soup and salad consisting of a butternut squash soup and a ham and brie sandwich on a sweet pretzel bun.  It was a cold evening in Midtown, so the soup really hit the spot.  It was smooth and thick with flavors of nutmeg and squash.  The sandwich was  nice and warm and the saltiness of the ham, mildness of the brie, and sweetness from the bread was a great combination.

It was a working dinner for me that day and so I hooked up to the Wi-Fi and enjoyed my meal quietly in the corner. All of Midtown's eclectic residents around that area enjoy market fresh for their fresh ingredients and flavors. Some of their menu items are 100% organic for their customers that value that as a high priority.  Metro Fresh is a fun and hip place to grab a quick bite or share a bottle of wine among friends and have a low-key dinner.

Casual dining, friendly and eclectic staff, unique and fresh ingredient combinations all in the heart of Midtown.... 5 1/2 diamonds!

Science Fact:

What does “organic” mean? 

Simply stated, organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Animals that produce meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones. 

 

The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows:

 

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
