Through a historical brick archway in the Old Market Passageway, V. Mertz crafts elegant plates of contemporary American recipes. In addition to tasting and prix fixe menus available throughout the week, patrons can sample the main dinner menu, which changes frequently, and can include plates of housemade charcuterie, grass-fed lamb with polenta, mushrooms, and goji berries, and roasted vegetables with oat crumb. A wine rack lines the rear wall of the dining room, and its vintages complement meals alongside specialty cocktails such as the V. Mertz manhattan, which adds ruby port and crème de cassis to the classic cocktail recipe. Exposed-brick walls and rustic wooden beams envelop the dining room, where tables don crisp white linens, and chairs are draped in white slipcovers emblazoned with the restaurant's initials and the initials of diners' grade-school crushes.
