Washingtonians has a couple rivers, the world’s busiest bridge, and a Met Museum where you’ll find a series of massive unicorn tapestries. Despite only being about two avenues wide, this area north of Harlem has an abundance of Dominican, Italian, Puerto Rican, and Mexican restaurants, just to name a few.

Florida serves a large variety of Cuban and Dominican food, like moving, Sophos, and rotisserie chicken, but the reason you’re here is for the Cuban sandwich. The $6 sandwich is very filling, with fatty ham, roast pork, and Swiss cheese, but the browned, pressed bread holds it together more tightly than a Victorian-era corset.

But no matter what, make sure to get a side of garlic bread, which is charred and crispy, painted with butter, and topped with a ton of black pepper. The very long menu at Male con, a casual Dominican spot with three locations around the city, is illustrated with pictures of their dishes, like whole-fried snapper and moving DE Cimarron.

It’s a tiny French spot with exposed brick walls covered in old photographs, and when you stop by, you’ll probably see one of the owners walking around, opening bottles of wine, and chatting with everyone. So if you need a charming spot where you can talk to a nice stranger and eat a big plate of COQ Au VIN, The Pandering Pig is an excellent choice.

Unlike many other spots with neon signs on the walls, this bakery has been open since 1979 and the cake slices are taller than your coffee mug. This is a good spot for a casual group dinner, and we especially like it for a quick meal in the bar area where you can watch sports on TV and smoke some hookah (if you’re into that).

The very good pies are made in a brick oven and come topped with things like black truffle oil and suppressant, which you can enjoy with beer or wine. You can stop by at 11pm on a Tuesday, grab a table, and eat some perfectly decent Mexican food, like steak tacos or an all pastor burrito.

They also make some very strong cocktails here, and we’re fans of the dark, festive space stuffed with liquor bottles and other knick-knacks. Stop by with a friend for a quick weeknight dinner, or just sit at the bar, drink a mescal neurons, and have some nachos by yourself.

This converted garage is mostly a takeout spot, but if the weather is nice, order some gelato and sit at one of the sidewalk seats along Wadsworth Ave. This ramen spot and sake bar is casual enough for a solo dinner, intimate enough for a date night, reliable for takeout, and pleasant enough to get drinks with a friend.

The “Celebrity sandwiches” and “Classics” are the most popular orders and a good place to start, but if you’re here before 10 a.m., the breakfast burrito is also a solid choice.
