Located down a cobbled alley from the main square, Macondo is known for fresh seafood and an old-fashioned atmosphere that echoes its ancient Groda neighborhood. The dining room is simply styled in light tones, wooden furniture, and canvasses of modern art. There’s also a fireplace and a few tables outdoors. The Croatian cuisine includes lobster spaghetti and a platter of Dalmatian-style tapas like anchovies, pâtes, and octopus salad. Heartier offerings include the gregada—a stew-like soup filled with sea bass, John Dory (a type of white fish), potatoes, garlic, and onions.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
