About Mercadito Hospitality

Mercadito Hospitality has grown from its first New York City restaurant location in 2004 to become a renowned restaurant group specializing in Mexican, Latin American, Spanish, and American cuisines. The popularity of the group's restaurants can be attributed to Partners Alfredo and Felipe Sandoval, innovative culinary interpretations created by Chef/Partners Patricio Sandoval and Ryan Poli, and its joint venture with renowned consultants Paul Tanguay and Tad Carducci - the Tippling Bros - who bring inimitable flavor profiles to the group's beverage programs.


The group owns and operates four acclaimed concepts. Mercadito, the company's flagship concept, includes two locations in New York, as well as Mercadito in Chicago and Mercadito in Miami. The team also owns and operates Double A, an intimate, exclusive cocktail lounge located beneath Mercadito in Chicago. The group opened its second Chicago restaurant, Tavernita, in January 2012, followed by PT Pop Up at the Gold Coast's Talbott Hotel in May 2012, which will soon be replaced by Little Market Brasserie.
