Recommendations near the Cloisters?
I would appreciate recommendations. I've heard there are some good Latino places nearby, but we're open to any type of cuisine. Also, how is the parking situation in the surrounding areas--we've only parked in the Cloisters lot. Thanks in advance.
Malecon has good roast chicken and the mofongo de longaniza is good too.
El Conde, right next door, does a pretty good skirt steak.
Manolo, which is on 176th and Bway, has decent tapas and wine menu.
Closer to the Cloisters, there are a number of restaurants around 187th and Ft Washington. Refried Beans has standard Tex/Mex- okay, not great. Kismat has standard north Indian food. Bleu is OK, but in my opinion overpriced. Same with the restaurant Next Door.
If it's a nice day, stop in Franks Gourmet Market- they have a good number of prepared foods and you could do up a picnic.
