“one fantastic steakhouse”

Please allow me to introduce you to Metro 8 - a dining experience unlike any other in the Triangle.  Located on Ninth Street in Durham, Metro 8 offers a twist on the classic American steakhouse. Along with the traditional steaks and chops, diners can experience several dishes that reflect the chef/owner Francisco Pirillo’s Argentinean heritage.  You can start with crab stuffed shrimp, move on to a classic filet mignon, and finish up with chocolate soufflé.  Or  you could begin your meal with empanadas, follow that with a churrasco steak and chimichurri, and conclude with our signature dulce de leche crêpes.   Along with the delicious steaks, all of which are cut on premises, Metro 8 offers entrees that appeal to all tastes including homemade fettuccine porcini, sushi-grade herb crusted tuna, and bone-in chicken breast dishes.The simple yet elegant menu is further enhanced by the atmosphere - always inviting, never pretentious or stuffy.  Husband-and-wife owners Pirillo and Cassandra Ramos used soft, clean hues of beige and white complemented by a rich hardwood floor and bar to create an incredibly peaceful, open dining area reminiscent of South Florida hot spots.   The enclosed, heated patio in back is functional all year long and is perfect for a romantic dinner with your spouse or for your next event.  Most importantly, dining at Metro 8 does not have to be reserved for special occasions only.  Mid-range prices combined with extended dining hours make the restaurant accessible to everyone.Our new Club 9 venue is now available for bookings!If you have any questions or would like to make a reservation, do not hesitate to give us a call.  We invite you to come and experience Metro 8.  Give us a chance to impress you.  We will not let you down!
