After messing up what was supposed to be a home-cooked meal or watching a movie that made you think harder than you ever did in school, sometimes you just need a platter of very good grilled chicken. Get that need met at La Nueva Espana, a Dominican spot on 207th Street. Once you walk in, you’ll realize that this place has two floors and a bunch of big tables that could easily host your entire inner social circle. Order half of a grilled chicken with a side of rice and beans - it might be the best $14 you ever spend.
