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. The lavish décor competes with a vegetable garden, marble fountain and goldfish pool in the outdoor seating area. It is not all just for show, either. All the vegetables and fruits grown on the premises go from the garden to the table. Both the whole roasted branzino and the mixed lamb and goat are cooked on the aforementioned oven and grill, with the latter being roasted in a dome-covered pan to seal in flavor and maximize heat. The results are a branzino that is flaky and moist, while the tender meat and crispy skin of mixed grilled meats give off smoky, pungent aromas. Although the wine list offers selections from the old- and new-world alike, have a truly Croatian-inspired experience from start to finish and go for a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon from a Croatian vineyard.
