Mercadito Hospitality has quietly reconcepted their restaurant in the Talbott Hotel and joined a growing trend of seafood restaurants. Little Market Brasserie, which opened to the public in December 2012 under chef Ryan Poli, is now Mercadito Fish, a seafood spot that focuses on "American classics" from chef Guillermo Tellez, according to a release. It's open softly today, according to a staffer, and is scheduled to fully open on Monday.
Tellez apparently pushed for the change. His menu includes comfort dishes (such as crabcake, chowder, fried shrimp, lobster roll, and fish and chips) as well as a raw bar for oysters, clams and shrimp cocktails. New decoration includes "freshly painted sea accent-themed works" by a graffiti artist. Look for special events and promotions soon.
This change adds to many recent seafood concepts in town, which run from Italian (Nico Osteria, Joe Fish), to oyster (Bow & Stern, Pearl Tavern), but is the first seafood concept for Mercadito Hospitality.
