Our Story

Doris Metropolitan is a steakhouse, but not the kind you are envisioning. While old school charm and tradition have their place, especially in New Orleans, we are less conventional because we believe at its core, fine dining should be unpredictable and unprecedented.

When partners Itai Ben Eli, Dori Rebi Chia and Itamar Levy traveled to the Big Easy few years ago, the city?s unmistakable energy drew them in. New Orleans has an appetite for adventure and new culinary experiences that the group could not help but admire. In 2013, Doris Metropolitan opened its doors in the heart of the city?s iconic French Quarter serving expertly prepared dry aged beef and the highest quality meats. Our founders? Middle Eastern heritage is underscored in the carefully designed menu, which also features vegetable-forward appetizers, local seafood, an innovative caviar menu, and seasonal sides.

The team also owns and operates Doris Metropolitan in Costa Rica which was founded in 2010. Similar to New Orleans inception, a vacation turned into a love affair with a city and it?s culture, vibe and people, and thus, a restaurant was born.
