Executive Chef & Owner
Nicolas Mercier was born in Montreal, Canada and was drawn at a very young age to the culinary art, thanks to his mother and her passion for cooking. After climbing the ladder in the restaurant business, he opened with two associates his first restaurant in Quebec City when he was 23 years old. A second would soon follow in 1992. After 10 years of success, he decided to sell his partnership and move to Naples, Florida with his wife and business partner Nathalie Savoie. Mostly self-taught, he had the chance to work with many great chefs and learned from them. But his success is mostly due to his love for cooking, a great sense of perfection and a refined taste.
Nicolas lives in Naples with his wife, Nathalie and his two kids. His food is uniquely tasty and has a lot of personality.
"With its subtle submarine motif and obvious seafood obsession, USS Nemo (239-261-6366) is among the most original restaurants on the Naples dining scene these days, and it has the fan base to prove it."
Chelle Koster Walton
"The miso broiled sea bass with citrus-ginger butter sauce is almost worth a trip to Naples in and of itself."
The New York Times
"I can tell you without hesitation, this is THE BEST and most consistent restaurant in Naples. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!"
"Most consistently great restaurant in Naples!"
