il Mercato Spring Garden

il Mercato Trattoria on Spring Garden Road went through a mini transformation over the May Two Four weekend and the changes are nothing less than extraordinary. But then, what else would you expect from the legendary Bertossis? 

I was asked to come in and shoot a small private party held to celebrate the new space.
