Located in the shadow of the elevated tracks near the northern tip of Manhattan, Lina is a homestyle Dominican spot that specializes in lots of things that’ll keep you warm during the winter months, or just make you feel better when it’s been a day. Choose from a solo spot at the counter or one of the tables topped with a floral tablecloth (and, because this place is nothing if not practical, covered with plastic) and get ready to fill up on a bunch of classic dishes. There’s tender roast chicken, garlicky mofongo, and plump oven-cooked shrimp, all of which should be ordered with a generous side of tostones, rice and beans, sweet plantains, and a cold bottle of Presidente (or three).
