Mercury Lounge describes itself as "global Asian cuisine," but its soul is Filipino, and Ainza became known for cooking innovative modern-Filipino dinners and selling late-night Filipino street food on weekends.
Ainza will stop serving dinners after February 18; Mercury Lounge continue to serve bar bites and drinks until March 1. Check the restaurant's website for a statement tomorrow. And Ainza says he's currently looking around to see what comes next.
