We forgive Mercato for falsely advertising their sort-of-flatbreads as pizzas because they’re really good, and have toppings like coppa and braised fennel or fava bean and pecorino. The vibe here is also that ideal mix of casual and upscale, so if you have a first date lined up on the Eastside, Mercato Stellina is your move. Split a bottle of wine, the burrata with honeycomb and homemade crackers, and a flatbread pizza thing.
