Fodor's Expert Review Mesón D' Bari

$$ Zona Colonial Caribbean

For some 30 years, this popular restaurant, where baseball is inevitably on the TV at the bar, has been feeding the local Zoners what their grandmothers used to make. This simple Dominican restaurant is still a hangout for artists, baseball players, politicians, businessmen, tourists, and even unaccompanied gringas, who feel comfortable here. Really flavorful dishes include creole-style eggplant, empanadas of crab and conch, grilled crabs and chivo (goat), with stewed, sweet orange peels to finish. Prices are up even though the culinary ambition is not. You'll hear bachata and American music from decades past (think "Moonglow"). If you want a quieter atmosphere, go upstairs.
