Located in the historic Old Bank district in downtown Los Angeles, Bäco Mercat is a convivial neighborhood spot with an extensive menu made for sharing with friends and family and a focused drinks program with hand-picked spirits, beers, and wines from around the world.
Bäco Mercat is the home of the Bäco, the signature flatbread sandwich that was developed by chef-owner Josef Centeno. The original Bäco was the crispy pork belly and beef carnitas with caraway pepper sauce and salbitxada. Since then, the Bäco bread has taken center stage and works as a vessel for all things the delicious, including grilled meats, fish, vegetables, and our signature sauces. Our full menu is inspired by flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean, north Africa, southern Europe, and Asia.
