This weekend, Mercer One Thirteen joins a jam-packed block of trendy favorites that range from the Asian-focused Slurping Turtle to fashionable steakhouse Epic.
It's owned by Roman Sanchez, who's been tinkering with sports-bar ventures lately with Social 25 and Moe's Cantina). Though it'll have televisions for sports viewing, Mercer promises to be a lot more glam, with a plushy, yet earthy setting and focusing more on food.
Here's a sneak preview of the menu:
Mercer's steak salad.
The opening menu features quite the number of seafood dishes, including Maryland-style crab cakes, almond-crusted halibut, thyme-crusted salmon, tempura shrimp, and wild-caught salmon. The steak salad also looks promising, with generous hunks of meat.
They're also updating a number of classic cocktails, namely the Blackberry Old Fashioned, Aranciata Mojito and Hummingbird martini.
