At Bäco Mercat, Middle Eastern flavors muddle with Italian and American influences, creating eclectic dishes that you can’t find anywhere else. Even the namesake Bäco bread is one-of-a-kind. A combination of pizza dough, tortilla and flatbread, the bäco bread serves as a base for sandwiches, pizzas and as a side dish for sharing. In a place where lamb meatballs share the space with za’atar and carnitas, anything is possible.
