I've eaten at many "Bund" restaurants. Many are good or nice, but none have ever left me feeling like they were worth every "Yuan"…Mercato, however, did! From the moment I stepped off the elevator its unique rustic yet chic and classy decor was warm and inviting, yet creative and refreshing! The Hostess was organized, polite and kind. (With great English skills). The decor of the whole restaurant continued from the lobby with the rustic warm classy charm…although a more interesting and complex as you moved through. Unique Glass bottles suspended from metal shelving, original wood plank floors, warm lighting, comfortable modern chairs, potted herbs at each table and on window ledges. The whole feeling was so inviting I didn't want to leave! Ok the FOOD! AMAZING! It's a Jean George restaurant so I knew it would be good. But I was blown away from the first bite of Homemade Ricotta and Strawberry on buttery toast…a complimentary plate of croquets were brought out, again AMAZING! Although this is not a "family" restaurant, it was perfectly fine for our kids with plenty of tasty menu choices. The WoodFired Pizza was excellent (and they were very accommodating to make the pizza and spaghetti to our kids liking). The salmon was fresh and cooked to perfection! My husband had the Sea Bass I believe and I didn't even get a bite he loved it so much he wouldn't share! The desert Choices were excellent as well. I can't remember what we had (but it was Chocolate) but it was top notch, fresh and unique in a filo dough shell. Our kids had homemade Gelato…I had to try some again, spectacular! Above our expectations! We will be returning very soon!
