The Mercer

About The Mercer

With its downtown NYC vibe and impeccable Calvin-Klein-meets-Keith-McNally interior, The Mercer is a bustling restaurant on Threadneedle Street in East London. The sophisticated surrounds have become an instant hit with the neighbourhood’s ubiquitous media and city folk, and is a hip hangout for working lunches and chic cocktails. The assured British fare is flawless; we highly recommend the venison carpaccio served with Armagnac prunes, lemon and parmesan; the Mercer Pie made with rump steak, mushrooms and London Porter ale; and the creamy vanilla rice pudding served with clementines and brandy snaps. The Mercer’s prestigious wine list is superb and offers up to 40 wines by the glass.
