Mercado Hollywood is part of a classic and contemporary Mexican dining collection of restaurant concepts that includes El Arco Iris in Highland Park and Yxta Cocina Mexicana in Downtown LA. The space was conceptualized by Ana Henton of Ana Henton Design with a similar design to its predecessors while incorporating unique details that make it stand apart.
Restaurateur Jesse Gomez and chef-partner Jose Acevedo introduced their third Mercado location on Cahuenga Boulevard just south of Universal Studios. The menu exemplifies the flavor of Jose’s and Jesse’s Mexican roots, featuring signature creations such as Chef Acevedo’s carnitas and flan. Chef Acevedo serves daily specials created from local farmer’s market-fresh offerings In addition to the cuisine, Mercado’s bar pours over 70 premium silver, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo tequilas, unique mezcals, and 14 draft and bottled beers.
