The new Casa del Campo Dominican Restaurant is serving mojitos and mofongo in the renovated North Babylon strip mall space that last housed Oriental Palace.
Tony Ramirez, a former owner at Merengue Dominican Restaurant in Garden City Park, owns the restaurant with his father, Rene Ramirez, who is also a partner at Dominican Restaurant 5 in Deer Park. That’s where Casa del Campo's chef, Andres Garcia, last cooked.
On the menu: tostones rellenos, or stuffed plantain cups with pork, chicken, skirt steak or shrimp ($9-$15), seafood ceviche ($14), mofongo (seasoned mashed plantains) with vegetables, pork, chicken, steak or shrimp ($13-$18), pernil asado, or roasted pork ($16) and red snapper in garlic sauce ($19).
Casa del Campo Dominican Restaurant is at 1159 Deer Park Ave., North Babylon, 631-586-1171.
