About Mercadito

Expertly blending traditional Mexico with creative interpretations of local and seasonal ingredients is the inspiration behind Mercadito restaurants. Spanish for “little market”, Mercadito is modeled after the markets chef Patricio Sandoval shopped at while growing up in his native Mexico. His muse is the cuisine of the southern region but when mixed with his own style he creates authentic dishes with an added flair.

Mercadito is located at 108 W Kinzie. Visit their website at Click here for the Tavernita website, here for Double A’s website, here for the Little Market Brasserie website, here for the Barcito website, and here for the Mercadito Hospitality website.
