New Hot Spot!

New Hot spot

Pasadena has a new entrant into it’s already fiercely competitive restaurant sector. For many of us, this brand is already well known since they already have several restaurants in the LA area. Cocinas y Calaveras has opened a Mercado restaurant in The Commons near the Shops at Lake in Pasadena. If the name Mercado sounds familiar to you it may be because you may have seen one in Hollywood, Los Angeles, and the original in Santa Monica which was named one of LA Magazine’s Top 10 Best New Restaurants in 2012. Along with it’s amazing flavor profiles, their latest iteration in Pasadena has a great outdoor area that is perfect for a lunch meeting! Mercado is open now for lunch and dinner!
