Mercado: Striking Space and Mexican Fare Flavors

August 20, 2014 9:02 am

Mercado offers classic and contemporary Mexican cuisine to LA diners. Mercado boasts an impressive and expansive indoor space to the tune of 6,200 square feet. Equally striking is the enormous street-facing window with sweeping views of the bustling neighborhood.

Of course, the other main draw is the cuisine. Restaurateur Jesse Gomez and chef partner Jose Acevedo pay homage to their Mexican roots through favorite signature dishes like carnitas — Chef Jose’s slow-cooked natural pork matched with guacamole, chile de arbol salsa, cauliflower, and escabeche. For seafood, try the pumpkin-seed encrusted jumbo deep sea scallops with chipotle-peppercorn sauce. There are also daily specials featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients available at local farmer’s markets. Don’t miss the flan if you saved room for dessert; it gets rave reviews. Sip a cool cocktail like the margarita de Jamaica with hibiscus-infused reposada tequila. Come enjoy Mercado any night for dinner or Sundays for brunch.
