The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Join Granada's Revival


2. Where to Eat

The interior and garden seating at El Jardin d'Orion.  

Cheap eats abound on Calle La Calzada, Granada’s restaurant row. The best traditional Nicaraguan fare —pupusas, $3; or Indio Viejo (meat stew with local cheese and plantain), $2.60is at Comidas Tipicas y Mas (from Parque Colón, first on right).

A high-end French meal at Jardin d'Orion (Calle Caimito, south end of Parque Colón; 505-8429-6494) won't set you back more than $75 for two (a three-course meal with wine pairing). The colonial building is newly renovated, but the lush garden is a more romantic setting.

Drink enough sangria to forget the past at Doña Conchi (Calle Caimito de la Alcadia, #413; 505-2552-7376). In between tapas courses, examine the bullet holes in the wall. They’re supposedly from the attempted execution of a wannabe American conqueror in 1858.
