Mesón D' Bari

Mesón D' Bari Review

Dominicans call this one a "long hitter"—as in baseball, which will inevitably be on the TV at the bar. For nearly 30 years, owner Sr. Marisol has been feeding the local Zoners the recipes of his grandmother. This simple, two-story Dominican restaurant has become a number-one hangout for artists, baseball players, politicians, businessmen, tourists, and even unaccompanied gringas, who feel comfortable here. The menu has really flavorful dishes, including creole-style eggplant, empanadas of crab and conch, grilled crabs, and stewed, sweet orange peels. Sadly, the presentations are dated, so expect garnishes of shredded carrots and iceberg lettuce, but now on white geometric plates. Prices are up even though the culinary ambition is not. You'll hear some bachata and soothing American music from decades past (think "Moonglow"). Some of the owner's artworks are among the wall-to-wall local paintings.
