In the winter, when I’m shivering from the cold, I look forward to the time when I’m having brunch on a warm weather day. I love brunch, sometimes it'll even end up with me dancing on top of a banquette with a mimosa in hand. Ahhh, good times.

When I discovered this tiny hole in Hell’s kitchen I was super excited that I could get a bite of these little crescent shaped treats whenever I craved some Latin flavor. Although every country has their own twist on their local empanadas and at this bistro, they provide you with a variety diverse enough to give you a taste of every country!

This tried and true Dominican restaurant has had its doors open for over a decade and seems to be a favorite not only of the growing Latino community, but locals of all different backgrounds. The papaya and mango colored walls are decorated with famous Dominican art, the Latin music is pumping, and the staff is super friendly. In other words, you will definitely catch the island vibe!
