About Metropolitan Grill

The “Cheers” of Fine Dining

Happy 20th Anniversary to Metropolitan Grill!

Patrick Shawn Duran

Head chef and owner, Pat Duran, has been cooking most of his life. It started in his mom’s kitchen as the youngest of 12, and he is still greatly inspired by her to this day. He was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He has lived all over the country and traveled the world, previously as a Paratrooper in the Army and now as an avid foodie. Our menu changes with the seasons, and Pat works with local growers and purveyors to provide you with the freshest experience possible. He has a passion for food that shows in every bite.
