Taking its cues from classic brasseries, The Merchant offers a convivial atmosphere and top-notch food for diners in the Downtown Crossing/Financial District area. The name is an homage to the great history of the neighborhood and to the space’s previous tenant, London Harness, which operated there 100 years ago.
Open for lunch, dinner and late-night service, The Merchant serves an American-leaning scratch menu, which includes an ample raw bar selection as well as house-cured and smoked meats. Designed to accommodate diners in search of a quick bite or a full-course meal, the menu is available all day long and well into the evening (for those who need something to snack on after a long night of work).
The 40-foot bar, serving more than 36 beers on draft and in bottles and cans, is a major focal point of the spacious dining room. The Merchant also offers an approachable and interesting wine list that includes two wines on tap and a great cocktail program.
