Dubrovnik Restaurant Review: An outdoor wood-fired oven and grill is the main draw at this New Rochelle restaurant named for the Croatian city on the southern Dalmatian Coast. Lavish décor competes with a vegetable garden, marble fountain and goldfish pool in the outdoor seating area. It’s not entirely just for show, either. All the vegetables and fruits grown on the premises go from the garden to the table. Start with a Dalmatian platter with spiced Italian ham and smoked beef served with assorted cheeses, olives and Croatian pickles, and fresh grilled seasonal vegetables drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Filet mignon with mashed potatoes, asparagus and sautéed wild mushrooms in porto wine sauce, and tuna over arugula pesto purée and grilled squash are prepared via the aforementioned oven and grill. Authentic desserts include crêpes complemented by rose hip jam and a Croatian version of flan. Although the wine list offers selections from the old-world and new-world alike, guests can have a truly Croatian-inspired experience from start to finish and go for a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon from a Croatian vineyard.
