il Mercato is a hidden gem right in the center of the garden district. There is a beautiful courtyard with a rustic feel (including a fireplace) that is landscaped to match the style of the venue. And the inside is stunning. The simplicity and clean look of the indoor area adds to the beauty and the open layout is perfect for weddings. Our ceremony was held in the courtyard and reception inside and the transition was flawless. In regards to hosting an event, I would highly recommend it. Our guest raved about the quality of the food and the service was top notch. I don't think there is any other venue like il Mercato in the New Orleans area.Sent on 06/04/2016
