Carli Muñoz knows how to tinkle the ivories, and he's got the gold record to show it. Carli's Fine Bistro & Piano is a lovely place for a romantic dinner or special occasion in Old San Juan. Mr. Muñoz is a gracious and welcoming presence on his genuine Steinway grand, the service is gracious and professional, the bartender is artful (my wife declared the mojito to be the best she had in Old San Juan) and the food is solidly good (and I don't mean this as a slight - there was not a thing wrong with the food, but it isn't really the jewel in this crown). It's an "experience" place - the highlight for me was listening to Mr. Muñoz' interpretations of the Great American Songbook, which captivate both the heart and the head. I know Cole Porter was smiling at one point. The food, atmosphere and service are a wonderful complement to the beautiful experience of the music. I'm so glad we spent the evening at Carli's - great memories, for sure.
