Latin American Restaurant

“Latin nightclub that also serves food. Many top Salsa/Latin performers perform here often for free. Tends to get crowded on weekends and for special events. Ladies should be in heels, and guys in collared shirts.”

“The one and only problem with Liberato is the prices - it's a little too expensive to go on a regular basis. However, it's a true experience, with a large to-go section in the front and a snug bar and sit-down section in the back. They have a huge menu and do everything from desserts to coffee to take out to every type of Dominican food known. And all the food ranges from "satisfactory" to "very good". It might seem hectic at first if you're not used to the environment, but trust me, worth the wait. Open late with a decent bar as well.”

“I've never been here before - I don't eat chicharrón, but it's always full and everyone raves about it. Chicharrón is like pork rinds or crispy pork skins. Definitely not kosher.”

“This is a secret spot that you'd never even think to go in...and if you're not West African, you'll raise some eyebrows, and maybe even turn some heads, but this place serves very reasonably priced and good quality West African food with Ghanian emphasis I believe. This place is dark and hidden but beats hands down the New York Times reviewed bright and glitzy Papaye on Grand Concourse (I'd personally avoid eating there). Best dish is the fufu with fish. Be prepared to eat with your hands :-).”

“Very loud Dominican nightclub that gets very crowded on the weekends. You'll hear the deafening Música Urbana, Bachata, Salsa, & Merengue from a block or two away. If you're there on a weekend around 4 or 5 in the morning you're guaranteed to see the cops with a woman in 3 inch heals and teary mascara crying cuz her boyfriend got into a fight with some other girl's boyfriend (or cuz she got into a fight with someone's boyfriend). If you like to dance, you'll have a blast here. ”

“Totally typical loud and boisterous Dominican bar. During the day it's just kind of a "restaurant" but at night it's a happening spot with scantily clad women with booming Bachata and Merengue and "cubetazos" (buckets of beer). Although I walk by it all the time, I actually have to thank my former AirBNB guests who went and had a good time and told me all about it. ”
