Quiesqueya is another name for the Dominican Republic. And Quiesqueya Heights is the unofficial name of the mostly Dominican neighborhood in the Washington Heights area of upper Manhattan. It is this Quiesqueya - Quiesqueya on the Hudson - which Michele has adopted as her NYC neighborhood.
And it was in the "Latino" restaurants and grocery stores of Quisqueya Heights that Michele saught out her ultimate comfort food, CalMex-style mole. She took her friend Amilcar Serrano, a Mexican immigrant to Dominican Quisqueya Heights, along as her guide.
