Another Interesting Restaurant Opening on Metropolitan

DNAinfo reports that Peruvian restaurant La Coya will replace the long-time restaurant Chalet Alpina at its location at 98-35 Metropolitan Ave.

Another reason to take the trek—soon snowy trek—through the Gardens down south! And, another bustling Austin St.  loss to sleepy Metropolitan when it comes to interesting restaurants.

Go figure.

By the way, where did that silly "Michelin Road" nickname come from anyway? Do you all like it? or hate it? And just how many of the restaurants on Metropolitan are actually in the Michelin Guide? Two? Three?...


  1. Peruvian restaurants are all the rage now!

  2. Danny Browns is the only Michelin starred restaurant on Metropolitan. There are 3 others in Queens - two in LIC and one in Jackson Heights.

  3. Katsuno is on the 'Bib Gourmand' list
