Gold Winner il Mercato

Bronze Winner Cha Baa Thai
You haven’t lived until you’ve limped your way out of il Mercato with the top button of your pants undone. The Bedford member of the Bertossi Group of Italian-inspired restaurants is always full of life—the clinking glasses, jingling cutlery and hum of conversation easily drown out the music, and any doubts about ordering a towering piece of zuccato from the dessert case. Handmade pastas, rich antipasti and wines from Tuscany to Gaspereau make overindulgence hard to avoid, here. But hey—that’s amore.
