Carnivale – Mercato Centrale at McKinley

Carnivale – Mercato Centrale Opens at McKinley

Carnivale Mercato Centrale

Last December 12, 2013, Carnivale, latest place of the highly successful Mercato Centrale, opened its doors to the public. It is at the open center space of the Venice Piazza Mall at McKinley Hill. This is great news to everyone who lives or works at McKinley Hill ( me included) as we would have an array of foodie choices for dine outs every Thursday and Friday.

One thought on “Carnivale – Mercato Centrale at McKinley

  1. […] the latest one that we tried out. Off the Grid follows the concept of a food truck (e.g. Mercato, Carnivale, Cucina Andare) but offers something that customers really look for on these night […]

So what can you say? :)
