Must try: Steamed Shrimp Salad, Pizza with Roasted Eggplant
Mercer Kitchen is Jean-Georges’ chic Soho eatery.
Located in a basement space of the trendy Mercer hotel, the menu here tenders French-influenced new American fare. Dishes are generally market driven whilst some favorites remain on the menu all year around.
I found our meal here to be really solid. Some dishes really shone like the Steamed Shrimp Salad and the Roasted Eggplant stracciatella wood-fired pizza whilst dessert was a disappointment.
The portions are very generous – I ordered the lunch prix fixe and found it too be too much for one person!
Mercer Kitchen offers a really great overall neighborhood spot with a super cool vibe and good food and thus is often dotted with locals and A-list celebrities alike.
Here is some of what we ate:
SWEET PEA SOUP
STEAMED SHRIMP SALAD
DI PAOLO’S BURRATA MOZZARELLA
OVEN ROASTED SPINACH PIZZA
PIZZA with ROASTED EGGPLANT
GULF SHRIMP WITH SWEET PEAS
