If you’re looking for a place that’s between the fast casual vibe of a fritanga and the opulence of a more formal Nicaraguan-style steakhouse, then Cerro Negro off of West Flagler Street by Fontainebleau is the place to go. This casual restaurant has a polished yet low-key feel that’s perfect for a relaxed second date or to take your friends, family, or out-of-town visitors. The leather-bound menus are full of the usual suspects, including a selection of grilled meats, gallo pinto, and exceptional fried cheese. There are also several seafood options to choose from, including pargo a la tipitapa, a whole deep-fried snapper topped with an onion and tomato sauce. However, the soups, which arrive at the table in small cast aluminum cauldrons, shouldn’t be missed. Sopa de cola, a clear oxtail soup loaded with root vegetables and corn, is a true standout.
