Unfortunately this place has closed so do not go here. I was unpleasantly surprised. Had eaten there a number of times and everything was good. I think they lost their lease.

Was in Washington Heights for a event at Columbia. Got the famous (and best) arroz con pollo. It's freshly made per order with vegetables, chorizo and small pieces of chicken with bones. It was terrific.

I've been coming here for over 20 years. Classic Dominican food - chicken and rice, tostones, tropical juices. The interior isn't fancy, and the staff usually moves at a relaxed Dominican pace. But the food is always solid, and the cafe con leche is to...More

As soon as you arrive, you realize this will be good. Pitchers of various margs, loads of guacamole, lots of tacos and great friendly authentic service. Definitely go - need a reserve.
