MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Peruvian pottery and tapestries set a casually elegant scene at this neighborhood gem, which is quickly earning a loyal following for its frothy pisco sours and dishes full of spice and flavor. Beyond the limestone façade, the deep, narrow dining room is filled with sunlight from arched windows. It also boasts a wall covered in river stones and a relaxed bar with striking artwork. The diversity of Peruvian cuisine is on tasty display here, from classic items like ceviche mixto with crunchy red onion, oversized kernels of corn and sweet potato, to chupe de camarones-a thick, restorative soup of rice, seafood and gently poached eggs. A juicy skirt steak with sautéed onions, peppers, cilantro and sweet plantains on the side will satisfy carnivores.
