There's something so not-New York about this place. It displays a kind of blatant European-countryside romanticism that would make it one of the city's most popular restaurants if this were Phoenix. Not that its dried-flower charm is forced. It's just that La Metairie works on a rhythm that seems totally foreign to the current mode of dining around town, and you have to give in to its leisurely intensity. But with such classically full-bodied choices as foie gras in Calvados, garlic mousse, seafood sausage, and snapper Provençal, that's not really so hard to do. Start off with some red wine. Finish the first bottle by the end of the first course, and you'll be holding hands in the firelight before you know it. Let's just hope it's not a business dinner. —Hal Rubenstein
