Terra Luna Cafe
The robust aromas of Dominican specialties float through the air inside Terra Luna Cafe's kitchen. Chefs stuff traditional quipes, or cracked-wheat fritters, with ground beef, and sprinkle plates of mofongo—smashed, fried plantains—with shrimp and crispy pork. A handful of dishes from Europe—including Italian meals such as chicken cacciatore—round out the globe-trotting menu.
On Wednesdays through Sundays, spice-laden scents from these plates mingle with the fiery melodies of musical guests in the dining room. Live bands unwind notes from Spanish classical guitars on Thursday nights, and DJs keep the restaurant's brick archways up over the weekend with an unending stream of salsa, merengue, and popular dance music.
