Best not to go famished as the price to fill up is steep, but the atmosphere, with its towering arches, grand courtyards and charming koi pond, is unmatched in the city.

A towering and cavernous restaurant brimming with Dominican style, Jalao is over-the-top theme park touristy but attracts local crowds, too. The walls and ceiling are decked out in traditional kites, decorative crosses and reclaimed wood from country homes, and live bachata (guitar-based bolero rhythms) and merengue bands play regularly, try the goat confit or the crab stew.

The simple, bare bones dining room belies the quality of the cooking here in delicious dishes like grilled spicy goat, a whole snapper and okra fritters. Wash it all down with a bottle of Prestige, a Haitian beer and fruit juice flavors not often served in Dominican restaurants.
