Merchant is a very cool modern space in the Central Business District of New Orleans. I was a huge fan of the red accents and mix of rustic wood pieces with sleek white chairs.
We kinda took over this communal table with all our bags and food. I regretted not getting a sweet crepe - I went with a savory pancetta and think I would have preferred good ol' nutella and fruit. Illy coffee is obviously no Stumptown or Blue Bottle but as snob as I am about coffee, I will enjoy whatever is available to me.
