Chicago native, Iron Chef Jose Garces, fused age-old flavors from Spain’s Catalan region with a modern signature twist. The inspired menu offers diners the chance to experience the rich culture of Barcelona, whether they’re savoring small plates, distinctive steaks, or sampling from Mercat’s extensive cava, sangria, wine or bar selections.
Mercat a la Planxa combines the best of both the old and new worlds, bringing a Catalan aesthetic to the heart of Chicago.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Mercat a La Planxa features an extraordinary selection of tapas dishes from cut-to-order charcuterie and cheeses to fresh seafood, steaks and chops, all inspired by Spain's Catalan region. The impressive menu includes an emphasis on meats and seafood served 'a la planxa' or grilled-to-order. At the bar enjoy a tempting array of seasonally inspired sangrias, Spanish-styled cocktails, an extensive collection of Spanish cavas and our carefully selected wine list featuring 40 Spanish wines available by the bottle or by the glass.
Private dining is available in our upstairs space, La Veranda, overlooking the entire main dining room.
