Hot Plate: Republi'K


Washington Heights.

You know, past Fairway.

But who's going to take the A train for supper?
Washington Heights is the new dining frontier!

Oh, come on . . .
Seriously, local lounges Arca, Umbrella, and Hispaniola are starting to attract adventurous downtown crowds.

And this isn't just supper! This is the work of chef Ricardo Cardona, who toiled under Nueva Latina kings Douglas Rodriguez and Alex Garcia. He's taking over the stove at 114 Dyckman Street, opening next month.

What's on the menu?
Langoustines with coconut and ginger, quail in cognac, squid and banana -- shall I go on?

Mmm, please do.
Caribbean crème brûlée, Dominican sweet-corn custard.

Make mine a Presidente!
No, no, the house specialty will be pineapple mojitotinis, after which you can dance on the tables made of seashells.

What, no dance floor?
"Latins can dance in a bathroom," says Cardona.
