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.

"Had a reservation for 9:15 (Which they called to confirm earlier)
Arrived promptly and there was no table and no table available in the fore-seeable future.
The Host shrugged and had no solution. Why bother making a reservation.
I would not try this place EVer again!"

Aska is Swedish chef Fredrik Berselius's Michelin-starred restaurant in Williamsburg serving modern Scandinavian food using local ingredients. Located inside Kinfolk Studios, the space features an intimate 18-seat dining room in the back and a 23-foot walnut-topped bar and spacious lounge in the front. Aska offers two tasting menu options: 7 courses Sunday and Tuesday-Thursday and 10 courses Friday and Saturday. In addition to the tasting menus, guests can enjoy a shorter set menu offered in the bar and lounge. To match Berselius's food, the wine menu features a curated selection of mostly natural wines from Europe and the US, all grown from indigenous grape varietals and with an emphasis on small producers. The bar serves both classic and original cocktails and is open daily till late night.<br /><br /><br /><i>Please note reservations are for the 7- and 10-course menus only. To book a table for the 3-course menu served in the bar and lounge, contact reservations@askanyc.com.</i>

Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant, owner and culinary director Darren Wan decided to reconceptualize the already successful restaurant in 2010 into the chic, upscale and exclusively Cantonese format that it is today. <br><br> Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day. <br><br> Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand rating in the MICHELIN Guide New York City 2011. Don't forget to try the Peking Duck Sliders, Pan Fried Dumplings and Red Egg Filet Mignon to name a few.
