Now I already know that all of the original New Yorkers know about this restaurant, and I am sure most true New Yorkers know as well. If you are new to “The City”, you need to make note of this alluring dining hashery. The name is “Malecon” and it’s Dominican Food at its finest served in an atmosphere that is very comfortable and enjoyable.
Whenever I walk into any of their locations(my favorite is the one on Amsterdam Ave, it’s around the corner from me), the aroma of Rotisserie Chicken fills the air and really gets my appetite ready for some of the best food for the money. Malecon is one of the most affordable dining establishments in “The City” and all of their other locations around the boroughs as well. Each one of their eateries have plenty of space to sit back, relax and enjoy one of the many Dominican delicacies on their menu including quite a few seafood dishes as well. I went with my customary, half a Rotisserie Chicken, yellow rice, and black beans and as usual the tender garlicky chicken and the sides were all on point.
Now all of my readers know that I am a real stickler when it comes to service. The staff does a great job, they treat me like I am part of the family and that is not because I have been going there for years. I have observed over the many times I have dined there, all customers are treated the same, with courteous professionalism and first rate skill. You can tell this is a favorite of all original New Yorkers, just because almost everyone who comes in is a long-time customer.
Malecon is all about repeat business and that is why when partaking in the hospitality being offered from this bistro, there is never any disappointment. One assurance that can always be reproduced is that you will never leave hungry and most of the time you will probably be taking food home because the portions are very generous. If you are looking to eat a lot on a shoestring budget and dining ambiance that is carefree and unrestrained head over to Malecon. Tell them Dave Jacobs sent you.
