Mercy’s, the restaurant that opened January 22nd, succeeding The Earle Uptown in The Bell Tower Hotel, and previous to that the even more upscale Escoffier, is decidedly un-fancy. The ornate French bistro ambience of its predecessors — with delicate lace curtains, pastel paintings of European scenes and linen tablecloths — is gone, and in exchange there is a stark, contemporary feel: white walls; simple, yet elegant, hanging light fixtures; and modern pictures throughout. But while The Earle Uptown was often desolate, Mercy’s was busy and lively on both our recent visits, perhaps because it’s new — but also because the prices, while hardly inexpensive, are far more modest.
