Another New Fall Menu: Mercato BYOB

Less secretive than Marigold, Mercato introduces a new taste of old Italian traditions this fall

Mercato BYOB, located at 1216 Spruce Street in Washington Square West, just launched a new fall menu full of rich, Italian-American comfort food inspired by traditional Old World cuisine.

The new menu features an array of dishes within the three-course selections, as well as a four-course tasting menu offered on request.

First, the Antipasti section includes dishes like smoked mozzerella-stuffed meatballs filled with grated parmesan, fresh basil & thyme, marinara and a grilled baguette along with an assortment of the chef’s daily selections of soups and salads.

There’s pumpkin rigatoni with pancetta, butternut squash, tuscan kale, pumpkin shoots and horseradish crema for a first course, or seafood-based selections like spicy crab bucatini with crab tomato broth and pyramid pasta stuffed with ricotta, lobster and shrimp. Second courses includes larger entrees like an 8oz ribeye from Bickel Farms, or a chef’s daily selection of market fish paired with a seasonal side and homemade sauce.

You can check out the full new menu and make reservations at Mercato’s website.
