The Metropolitan Club owner Kathy Sidell Trustman has applied to take over the current home of Joe’s American Bar & Grill, reports the Herald. The proposed eatery, called Met Prime, will be the fourth in The Metropolitan Club’s portfolio, after the original Chestnut Hill location, Natick’s Met Bar & Grill, and the soon-to-open Met Bar & Grill at Legacy Place. Interestingly, Met Prime will be mere blocks away from Sidell Trustman’s sister’s restaurant, Stephanie’s on Newbury, putting the sisters in direct competition. Sidell Trustman couldn’t be reached for comment or an exact opening date, but Met Prime won’t open until Joe’s moves to the old TGI Friday’s space in March 2010.
