Mercado, Sydney

Tucked away on the CBD’s Ash Street lies Nathan Sasi’s Mercado restaurant, a sophisticated eatery with a focus on celebrating artisanal culinary skills – from cheese making and meat curing to butchery, bread baking and preserving. A true farm to table experience, Mercado works alongside local farmers, growers and producers to source fresh ingredients for their ever changing menu – think zucchini flowers with house-made goat curd, beef tartare with crème fraiche and crispy potatoes, and rose meringue with watermelon and pistachio. Meat plays a central role in the restaurant’s food ethos, our picks are the rotisserie chicken and wagyu beef short rib with bone marrow. Sleek, dark wooded interiors meet an expertly curated, intimate wine list to create a dining experience you’ll want to revisit time and time again.
