Finding a Dominican restaurant in Washington Heights, where over a third of the Dominicans who live in New York reside, might be easier than finding a McDonald’s in a strip mall. But finding one like sleek, stylish Bohio with its nuevo slant is not quite as easy. Soft track lighting, sleek tables, and Caribbean art on the walls set the tone, while menu extras reinforce the modern feel: complimentary tomato bruschetta, and innovative appetizers like ensalada de atun, raw tuna (definitely not a Latino tradition) served on a mixed green salad, and the addictive bollitos, sweet plantains stuffed with codfish and cheese. As a nod to tradition, entrees rely heavily on Bohio’s viejo roots, with staples of Latino food like chuletas criolla, pork chops flavored with a citrus and garlic mash and grilled until very well done (a Latino tradition), or the fried whole snapper, crisp on the outside, tender and moist inside, topped with a fresh Creole sauce, and served with sweet plantains glazed with brown sugar and cinnamon. The dessert options are limited to rice pudding and flan with the latter, decadently dense and floating in a fragrant caramel sauce, the winner of the two.Recommended Dishes
