Fillet of beef with potato fritter and roasted vegetable; Veal chop with basil gnocchi and spinach

After more than a decade, it’s safe to say The Mercury has perfected the art of indulgent dining. Executive chef Chris Ward has masterminded purely decadent dishes, like lobster soufflé in a rich creamed brandy sauce, and 48-hour braised short ribs, which practically dissolve on your tongue. In other words, leave your diet at the door. This is a place you’ll want to splurge. And after you’re done pampering that palate, unwind in the recently added swanky Side Bar, where you can linger over an after-dinner cocktail in one of the handsome leather lounge chairs.

The Mercury
Preston & Forest

1 Sevy’s Grill
Forget the turkey sandwich. Do lunch big here with five-spice duck salad or Kobe pot roast — just save room for the “best of both worlds”, vanilla and Godiva chocolate custard in a sugar-glazed crust.
Preston & Sherry

2 McCormick & Schmick
Get your seafood fix here with original dishes like the citrus-ceviche martini or lobster ravioli topped with blue jumbo lump crabmeat.
Northwest Hwy & Central

3 NM Café
Consider it the ultimate carnivore indulgence: The burger bar in the NorthPark Center store lets you choose from five types of patties (including Kobe beef), four types of buns, six kinds of cheese, and dozens of sauces and toppings.
