Taste of Peru

Seafood is king at this cozy, casual Peruvian spot, so start with the hefty mixed ceviche of fresh calamari rings, big shrimp, baby octopus and huge mussels (a value at $12) and move on to the family-size paella studded with every creature from the sea. Meat eaters will love the rich Peruvian beef stew and lomo saltado, tangy, tender beef strips sautéed with oniony tomatoes and topped with a heap of crispy fries. End with sweet, crispy plantains and amazing dulce de leche cookies.
