Perched just blocks from Yankee Stadium, Molino Rojo Restaurant stocks a clubhouse worth of chargrilled meats and succulent seafood on a menu that proudly represents the island cuisine of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. While either tucked into a table or sidled up against the front counter, pairs can contemplate their savory entree choices, including grilled lobster draped in garlic, lemon, or creole sauce. Known to many as “land lobsters,” hearty steak fillets sport stylish porterhouse T-bone cuts or adorn their sirloin shapes with a crown of mushrooms. Nibbles on the main course can swipe spots with a side of traditional fried pork rinds or a sip from a soft drink or a glass of red or white house wine. Family owned for more than 30 years, Molino Rojo Restaurant has tamed hungers during the baseball season and after it, when bobsled teams race down the upper-deck aisles of Yankee Stadium.
