Focusing on market-fresh, Italian-inspired food at 1216 Spruce Street inhabits the old Camac Food Market building, a historic space that has long stood vacant on the corner of Camac and Spruce Streets, just East of Broad St.

Mercato infuses slow cooking traditions of Old World Italy with an experiemental style and bold take on new Italian American cuisine, placing primary importance on using ingredients that are at their peak that day.

One can enjoy appetizers such as the whole grilled artichoke or the Mercato antipasti, a plate large enough to share that includes Italian cured meats, mozzarella, tomato, and grilled and marinated vegetables.

Entrees change to reflect the season monthly and weekly, if not daily. Enjoy a traditional meal of beef pork and veal bolognese with homemade pappardelle or the favorite lobster and shrimp "pyramid" pasta with asparagus and parmesan brown butter sauce.
