Hard to believe that it was almost a year ago to the day that Joe Mercuri sent Eater these photos of his eponymous new restaurant's massive fire pit in progress.
Mercuri wrote at the time:
Cooking area 49"d x 106"w x 42" high....actual fireplace 57"d x 118"w x 108" high......monster!! (Made by) Mauro Mucciarone.
That was then. Fast forward a year and the fire pit is in place on the Bar Mercuri side of Mercuri.
With it comes a new menu, built around the considerable capability of the chef's new toy and available as of tomorrow. About 15 apps and 12 mains in all. Details to come.
