At Doral's Las Mercedes Restaurant, the succulent, fat-rippled slabs served Thursday through Saturday speak for themselves. At most, there's a dusting of salt and pepper, perhaps accompanied by a splash of mojo. Racks of beef and pork are pulled from a smoking vessel, then cleaved and served with two sides such as moros, maduros, or boiled plantains with garlic oil. The place is run by Denise Paredes, who handles the register with ease while making chitchat and directing mammoth platters of ribs across the tight orange space. She and her husband bought it about ten years ago, when the weekend barbecue was already a longstanding tradition. They've also added some of their own flair to the mostly working-class menu, including a piquant, savory goat stew called chilindrĂ³n de chivo that will keep you sated the rest of the week.
