“The Food is the Thing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

You might miss this place without a helpful hint so here it is. Don’t be put off by the unprepossessing decor as this is a place where the food is everything. The interior is bright and cafe-like and it’s always full of locals. New York’s finest drop in from the local precinct for a take-away so it’s got to be the safest restaurant in town. The fried plantain and Pernil Al Horno (roast pork shoulder) are to die for. Wash that down with a few glasses of beer and the check is so reasonable it looks like they missed something out.
