Description: Mercato is a new coastal Italian restaurant from celebrated three Michelin star Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Three on the Bund. The gorgeous space created by Neri&Hu, bridges the organic and natural with elegance and emotive modernity. The experience begins from the moment guests enter Mercato's stylishly rustic surroundings. Reclaimed wood and warm leather tones serve as a gentle complement to the exposed steel, iron and glass to create an atmosphere that is polished yet warm and inviting. The design imparts a sensual feeling of comfort and lightness that redefines the idea of "farm chic". Mercato's decidedly simple and understated approach represents a refreshing addition to Shanghai's dining scene. The relaxed sophistication, addictive cuisine, and friendly, thoroughly unpretentious service paints a picture of Italian life as it should be experienced in its purest form.

Celebrity chef Jean Georges Vongerichten explore Italian cuisine in a fancy industrial chic restaurant with a breath taking view toward the Huangpu River and Luijazui.
You can find an Italian pizza (similar as in Italy) done in a wood fire oven, burrata cheese and also rigatoni pasta but also (and those are really amazing dishes) new strange combinations of different flavours combined together.
Everything we ate was really good except for “parmigiana” and “carbonara”.
The wine cellar is really huge!
Amazing dinner with an amazing view but definitely expensive.

There is nothing that anyone can find fault with at Mercato. The food is excellent, not overpriced, good vibe, good drinks. It is a guaranteed great evening and meal - unlike most places on the Bund which leave you feeling that you overpaid for your meal, not matter whether it was good or not.

From the moment you walk in just a great experience. Superb wine list and menu along with outstanding views. The burrata app was a standout as well as the spicy tuna tartar. The Veal Milanese came out perfectly on a bed of arugula making a wonderful combination. Attentive service. Just a great experience. Highly recommended.
