The brasserie style restaurant originated in France in the mid to late 1800's. The word literally translates as “brewery”, and was commonly a restaurant that brewed its own beer to serve its guests. A Brasserie is typically defined as a large, informal restaurant, that serves food and alcohol throughout the day, and late into the evening.
The Merchant borrows from these ideas, and while we don't brew our own beer, we offer a wide variety on draft, and in bottle & can. The bar is a major focal point; providing a convivial atmosphere and top-notch product. Along with our selection of 36 beers on tap, we also offer an approachable and interesting wine list, including 3 wines on tap, and a great craft cocktail program. The menu is designed to offer a quick bite, or a full coursed meal at lunch or at dinner. We also offer late night dining for our friends and neighbors, who need something to eat after a long evening's work.
The Merchant is located at 60 Franklin St. in Downtown Crossing, on the edge of the Financial District. We are extremely excited to be a part of the revitalization of the neighborhood, and strive to be a neighborhood go-to. The Merchant name is in part an homage to the great history of the neighborhood, and the previous tenant 'London Harness', who traded at the space for almost 100 years. We are proud to be contributing to the culture and dining of Downtown Crossing.
