Story
Patricio Sandoval's inspiration for Mercadito drew from his experiences shopping with his mother in Mexico at small markets. He grew up in the kitchens of his father's restaurant "Madeiras" in Acapulco, Mexico. After high school, Patricio moved to New York and was hooked. A graduate of the French Culinary Institute, he combines traditional techniques with non-traditional ingredients. New York Magazine voted Mercadito's Fish Taco the best in 2006.
