From the restaurant's website:
"Bäco Mercat is the home of the 'bäco', the signature flatbread sandwich that was developed by chef Josef Centeno. The original bäco was the crispy pork belly and beef carnitas with caraway pepper. Since then, the bäco bread has taken center stage and works as a vessel for all things delicious: pork, beef, poultry, seafood and vegetables."
 
"... until recently, the low-key, chef-driven neighborhood spot seemed underrepresented in L.A. Bäco Mercat fills that void."
— Andrew Knowlton, Bon Appetit magazine, America's Best New Restaurants, September 2012
