After New York and Boston, Miami is home to the third-largest population of Dominicans in the United States. The neighborhood of Allapattah, also known as Little Santo Domingo, has been a hub for the community since the 1960s. The most famous Dominican restaurant in the neighborhood is this lively spot, which opened in 1985. Here, you can eat traditional foods such as chivo and mangu during lunch, and then dance salsa, merengue, and bachata late at night.
