There’s a certain sense of style and panache in arriving by boat for your dinner, even if that is the only mode of transport available. For us terra firmers, a few days spent on boats is magical. Add to that a serendipitous city where there are no roads, no cars and there’ s only one place that comes to mind: Venice.
The Metropole hotel is located near the piazza San Marco and houses the only 2 star Michelin restaurant in Venice (and one of two Michelin restaurants). The first thing that strikes you about the dining room is its masculinity. It reminds one of gentlemans clubs, smoking rooms and the like, handsomely decked out in browns, tans and gold.
