I just stopped in at El Conde to tell Nick that he is tearing up DR-1 with all these good words. Let him know! He & his staff work so hard, and sometimes it's just good to hear. Even if it is from DRones.
I have never heard a bad thing about El Conde.. only extremely positive feedback.. my only regret is not going there yet , before one cant get a seat at this place .. ..its on the MUST DO short list for sure .
And Tilo and Andy are both my neighbors and very nice men, so in addition to both of them having good food, I want to support them in a neighborly way, too.
In a way, Nick is almost a victim of his own success. I was there for the extremely popular Friday Pie, and there wasn't a table to be had! I sat at the bar, which is not my favorite thing, but it was fine.
yeagh, i was not joking when i said " before one cant even get a seat or a table".. I hear NOTHING but really GOOD things
this place is THE new up and coming spot to be , eating & enjoying good food... or already is ..
did not know Andy was your neighbor, small world.. please tell him the NJ guy with the morena novia, who speaks really bad Schwaben dialect German says a warm Hello and see him pronto ... lol
His peppercorn Schnitzel is off the charts btw.. i know you dont eat the pork dishes , just saying..
If only he would serve Erdinger Weissbier though, in proper glass , they do have it at Playero now.
really enjoying this food thread.
I agree it is a great restaurant,it is owned by the owner of Playero. Expensive as hell though.My new go-to restaurant is Nelson's Bistro Lounge located in front of Super Pola on the property where you see the kids castle. 8oz burgers are the best I've had here, thick crust pizza like back in Canada is by far my favourite on the island. Salmon and chicken cordon blue are excellent, cheese sticks in marinara sauce, chicken strips and quesadilla are all good. I'm there 2-3 a week. Great quiet location. Excellent coffee and breakfast as well.

350 plus 28% equals 450 pesos,that's high even for a great burger but yes the food is outstanding,I am a regular there.Cheese and pepperoni pizza is 400 pesos...size of a medium. 8oz super burger and fries is 350.....imported steak 900 pesos. They charge both taxes though so it hurts the final price. I don't mind paying for quality food and ambience.
Midtown has great food, atmosphere,staff and is very reasonably priced. Hope you check it out.
Going to Sosua this weekend, and looking for a restaurant which may not quite be considered "fine dining", but kind of approaches that level. Someplace where I can order a dry martini, and not have to explain to the bartender how its made.
Excellent customer service is a must. I realize this might be asking a bit much for Sosua, but I figure., nothing beats a failure but a try.
