The Mercury is a restaurant and cocktail bar in Ponce City Market that looks like a cross between a set from The Jetsons and Mad Men. This place makes great drinks and it’s worth getting here early to have one before being seated for dinner. The menu is made up of upscale comfort food and includes a few different sandwiches and entrees, but the prime rib dinner - or sandwich - should be your first choice. After dinner, head up to the rooftop for some mini golf and a night cap, or take some extra time at the bar making mental notes of how to make your apartment look more like this place.
The Mercury is permanently closed.
