Food Truck
$$
“This outdoor food park, a local favorite, is a patchwork of cuisines dished out of kiosks and Airstream trailers, serving everything from Puerto Rican frituras (fried finger foods, like the alcapurria, a stuffed yuca or plantain fritter), Belgian-style fries, pizza, Southern-fried chicken, heavy-duty burgers and Mexican cantina nachos. BTW: Lote 23 also hosts events, which it promotes on social media, such as yoga sessions, film screenings, artisans’ markets and more. ”

Cocktail Bar
$$$
“Gallo Negro is just “cool”. Cool ambiance with a cool drink and cocktail menu. It’s drink and food menu will have you wondering what to have. So, let me help you. Appetizers.. get the Escargot! and the Brussel Sprouts. For the meat eaters .. get the Rib Eye; its delish and they give you a paste to put on the meat which is just decadent. For non meat eaters get whatever vegetarian plate they have as they change it around. I’m not a big dessert eater ... :) This place is my go to when I want to go eat with friends and pregame for a nice night out. Enjoy! ”

“This is walking distance from the bungalow. Take a stroll down the beach if the surf isn’t too high. Or walk thru the Ocean Park gate to get here. The gate closes at early but you can walk out the gate on Mclealy or if the surf isn’t high the beach. ”

Meal Takeaway
“Very good pizza in a more than cozy environment. Small place delightfully decorated. Your typical setting for songs like "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, by Billy Joel. ”
