Mercato in Philadelphia


1216 spruce st.
philadelphia, PA

this is probably one of my favorite BYOs in the city. the neighborhood is just lovely. unfortunately, this restaurant does not take reservations. You have to send a part of your party early to put your name down on the list (tight quarters, so you have to wait out on the sidewalk to put your name on the list). They usually can give you a rough time estimate, but instead of freezing your butt on the sidewalk, you can check out nearby bars for drinks. Just make sure you get back before they call your name otherwise you miss out on your table. The food here was amazing! The pasta is handmade.

I'm a food aficionado with an interest in photography. Most of my restaurants will be in New Orleans as I will be here over the next few years. Every now and then you will see a post from Boston or Philadelphia too!
