Village Voice's Description

Named after a gorgeous and fecund Dominican valley, El Cibao has been overlooked in the listless queue of trendy restaurants along Smith Street. This well-lit old-timer tosses a formidable and fillerless bacchalau (salt cod) salad dressed with onions, peppers, and vinegar, and purveys a well-seasoned pork roast in massive portions.

    New remodel looks great, excellent food especially the maduros.

    Jo R. is missing the point. If you want some ultra healthy artisanal vegan bullshit, find another place. Eat a huge plate of fried pork and plantains while you scowl at the snooty haters. Hrmph!

    Chicharron=delish but is literally a plate of fried pork belly pieces. Could only eat a few bf I could feel my heart slowing. Everything seems to be v unhealthy-even sautéed veg is drowned in butter.

    The sangria is amazing, and very strong! Same with the Mofongo. Get both!
