A giant red mural of a lama greets diners at the entrance of this Latin American brew pub, which also features tufted black banquettes and Inca warrior motifs. Tuck into Peruvian-influenced small plates, like fish tacos with roasted peppers, onion and lime; fluke ceviche with avocado and hearts of palm; and potato cake made with braised beef short rib and accompanied by salsa. Although the bill of fare is all Latin, only seven of the 60 beer selections (like Brazil's Parma Loca) hail from the region. The suds focus here is on American (Keegan's Mother's Milk Stout) and European (Reissdorf Kölsch) craft selections.

This is one of my favorite places in the city. They have an awesome selection of Peruvian themed tapas, and a huge selection of beers (following its namesake). I've also been during evenings with special menus (such as Valentine's day). The shorter menu still had great options and was fairly priced. The steak and the blue potatoes with hearts of palm are my two favorite dishes.
