Restaurants are the only place to enjoy a meal after your poltergeist learns how to operate the microwave and eats all your hot pockets. Enjoy unhaunted eating with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of traditional Dominican cuisine at Merengue in Roxbury.

Earning the title of Best of Boston 2008 Caribbean by _Boston _ magazine, Merengue slakes passionate appetites with fun, sophisticated flavors. Begin a tango across the elegant menu with ceviche de camarones, featuring succulent shrimp marinated in lemon juice ($6.75), or saunter straight up to the filetillo, in which tender steak tips are sautéed in Creole sauce with peppers and onion ($10.50).

Aptly named for the musical genre, Merengue represents the speech, movement, and hospitality of Dominican culture. Vibrant colors and paintings by renowned artists such as Alberto Ulloa and Dionisio Blanco complement a rich, tropical ambience. Experience an authentic fiesta every Friday and Saturday night, when live music lights up the floor and piñatas filled with friendship dangle from the ceilings.


More than 30 Yelpers give Merengue a four-star average:

  • A Friend brought me here for dinner and it's a great restaurant....nice a quiet and also a great family restaurant! the Food is the best I ever had. – Kimberly C.,Yelp, 09/28/10
  • When I am here, I automatically feel transported back to the DR. The decor is tropical, warm and vibrant. The waitstaff are always friendly and willing to explain any questions you have about the food – Giustina R.,Yelp, 01/19/10


Brightly colored walls, a permanent display of paintings by Dominican artists, and flavorful tropical dishes helped net Merengue a nod for Best Caribbean Restaurant in Boston Magazine's Best of Boston 2008. The kitchen yields a spread of meat and seafood items that range from fried pork skins and steak tips cooked in creole sauce to shrimp gumbo and a grilled red snapper in garlic-and-parsley sauce. Merengue’s two dining rooms seat 90 people, and a private room with WiFi and a PowerPoint screen projector provide ample meeting-room space. Catering menus for weddings and banquets offer a variety of serving styles, including formal seated dinners, self-serve buffets, and spoon feedings performed with accompanying airplane sounds.
