Below is an excerpt from the article printed in the January 22, 2013 New York Post.
“…. To add contrast to the amazing building boom going on downtown, plan on spending at least a day or two in Casco Viejo, the old section of the city, which dates back to the 1500s. It’s gradually being turned into a pedestrian-only area to alleviate the current congestion.
If you’d like to brush up on your Spanish, you can check out the courses at Casco Antiguo Spanish School (cascospanish.com), where sessions run from one day to several weeks. The school’s director, David Gold, a Connecticut transplant, is also a great source for current local hot spots for dining, drinking, sightseeing, shopping and places to stay in the old section of the city.
Gold’s tips include the Manolo Caracol restaurant, whose chef/owner visits local markets every day to select fresh produce and seafood for his famed eight-course dinners. It’s justifiably the most popular restaurant in the area — ask your concierge to help reserve a table.
Also on Gold’s list is Encima, located on the roof of the Tántalo hotel, with stunning views of the skyline and an attractive crowd that could rival South Beach.”
