Mercadito Avenue B

Expertly blending traditional Mexico with creative interpretations of local and seasonal ingredients is the inspiration behind Mercadito restaurants. Spanish for “little market”, Mercadito is modeled after the markets chef Patricio Sandoval shopped at while growing up in his native Mexico. His muse is the cuisine of the southern region but when mixed with his own style he creates authentic dishes with an added flair.

"The food here is outstanding. Creative and delicious tacos.
Please note that this location is very different than those in Chicago. In Chicago Mercadito is an upscale, trendy, flashy restaurant. In NYC (the original location), the restaurant is just a small neighborhood place. The food is just as good and the ambience is fine, just don't expect a trendy hotspot."

"The food was good but we were rushed to eat and move on. There was no tequila in the margarita and the wine was bad. Tables are on top of each other (four were seated at a table for two) and the noise level was quite high.
Service was fair. the waiter forgot two drinks.
This is a restaurant for kids who do not mind high prices for a moderate amount of food."

"Restaurant gets crowded and seats are squished together but once settled in with good food and drink, you forget your surroundings. The margaritas are good and strong. There is an impressive selection of different kinds of tacos. And the guacamole is really good!"
