A rustic trattoria run by an Italian-born chef, Mercato is the type of neighborhood restaurant we all wish we had. The menu shows hints of the chef's native Sardinia in dishes such as grilled whole sardines; rigatoni alla norma (with eggplant, tomatoes, and ricotta salata); and linguine ai frutti di mare. The antipasti section should not be ignored, and is paired well with the wine list, which has a deep selection of Italian wines, divided by region.
