Village Voice's Description
Mercat Negre is not as dependable as its sister restaurant, Mercat in the East Village, but it's one of the only places to get Catalan-inflected food in New York. Perhaps the most unreconstructed dish on the menu is the arros de sepia, also called arros negre, or black rice, a specialty of the Costa Brava, which stretches blue and rocky along the Mediterranean, north of Barcelona. But the arros caÃÂ§ador, or hunter's rice, is a better dish. The rice, cooked paella-style with bunny rabbit, peppery pork sausage, and a base of sofrito, tastes earthy and satisfying. Croquettes, filled with salt cod or ham, are predictably delicious.
Tips from foursquare
T'was disappointing. Advise against eating there.
Order some cod fritters and a glass of Lindero (verdejo) glorious
croquetas are sick. one of the sweetest spaces in williamsburg. when the roofdeck opens- CHECK IT OUT.
Get the Pop appetizer. Sooo surprising and soo good
