THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mercadito Restaurant Review

: This East Village eatery has attempted to bring a taste of the “real” Mexico to New York City. And it largely succeeds. Owner-executive chef Patricio Sandoval serves up a reasonably priced menu of ceviches, tacos and botanas (appetizers), complemented by a small raw bar. Noteworthy dishes include ceviche “callo de hacha” of marinated bay scallops, red onions, avocado, watermelon, mint, oranges and a chile habanero broth and the “pollo a las Brasas,” a whole grilled adobo marinated chicken with three-corn pico de gallo and chile de arbol salsa. A carpenter and furnishings were brought in from Acapulco to give the space an authentic design.
