Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: El Nuevo Caridad Restaurant Experience 2014!!!
Located at the corner of 116th St. & 2nd Ave.
On a night I decided to go to dinner with a friend we ended up at El Nuevo Caridad Restaurant. I was told to expect really good Spanish food. My taste buds perked up at the thought of what was to come.
Apparently there are quite a few former Pro Baseball Players who have eaten at this establishment. All of whom have been enshrined in the El Nuevo Caridad Restaurants “Hall of Fame” including MLB’s perennial “Hall of Fame” snub Barry Bonds.
Personally I feel Barry Bonds deserves to be in the Hall of Fame regardless of the rhetoric and bias politics the sports media have made as it pertains to his worthiness of entry into the Hall.
Anyway that’s for another discussion. Once inside we thought it fine to sit at the bar and eat. The bar is very small but the atmosphere was cool and down to earth. All of the staff were pretty friendly.
Both my friend and I ordered the Chicharron de Pollo with Rice and Beans but I opted for sin hueso (without bones), while my friend opted for con hueso (with bones). Chicharron de Pollo for those of you who dont’ speak Spanish means Fried Chicken chunks.
The food here is very good. I thoroughly enjoyed my Chicharron de Pollo sin Hueso with Arroz Amarilla y Habichuelas. 😉 The food portions are very adequate and more than satisfy as you can see.
Here’s a look at some of the rest of their interior.
My overall impression of El Nuevo Caridad Restaurant, which is huge in terms of square footage, (as it looks to be the size of two establishments in one) is that for the price and money this is a must eat at destination for lovers of Latin cuisine. I score it 5 dinner plates out of 5. OOOOO
If you’re ever in Spanish Harlem give them a try and let us know what you think. Till next time this has been EL Nuevo Caridad Restaurant Experience 2014 by THEJNSREPORT.
