The Amsterdam Avenue location of this Washington Heights Dominican spot serves dishes like emparedados, mofongo de chicharron, and our personal favorite, rotisserie chicken. For $7.50, you get a half-bird with skin that tastes like it’s coated in brown sugar, and for another $4, you can and should add a side of boiled green bananas. If you’re looking for somewhere on the UWS to bring your whole family for a great dinner without spending a ton of money, this is the place. They’re currently open for takeout and outdoor dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
