Mercato arguably has one of the best lunch buffets in Chester County. What makes it so great?
I agree! We use fresh from scratch ingredients for almost all our dishes. In addition, we make all our foods fresh daily. We believe it is a fantastic way to sample nearly all our foods in an affordable way. In addition, it provides our chefs an opportunity to play around with different foods and recipes they don’t normally get to make during a busy evening in the restaurant.
Does the buffet offerings always change, or is it pretty consistent from day-to-day?
Essentially it is pretty consistent. We try to always offer a few options of salad, pizza, protein, and fish. But within those larger groups the exact items themselves are always changing.
What is a staff favorite dish that many customers may not be aware of?
I personally love our Fettuccine Mercato, and I don’t think it gets enough attention. Most people lean more towards our Capallini Positano and Linguine Pescatore. So…if you’re less interested in seafood, the Fettuccine Mercato (with chicken added) is an amazing option. Essentially, it is a more elevated Fettuccine Alfredo but we add peas pancetta and cherry tomatoes to it to give it a little more ‘oomph.’
What excites you about the future of West Chester in the next 5 years?
We’re just excited about more opportunities for people to get out and about around town in West Chester. One of our favorite things is our regulars. And the more people who decide to be become one of our regulars, the happier we are; we love those relationships.
