This homey eatery feels like a local joint in Lima, plopped down in a still-unspiffed section of Williamsburg. Small enough to bump elbows with other diners seated at the well-worn tables, the entire place is bathed in soft yellow light and decorated, with an eclectic hand, with palm-sized paintings and swags of multicolored lights. The Peruvian–inspired Latin–fusion menu features tangy acid-cooked dishes, like tart seviches, and standouts like wonderfully moist chicken a la brasa and subtly spiced roast pork. The cheerful staff supply a stream of very generous mojitos and margaritas in Mason jars. The bar may be but a mere slip of a counter, but it provides invaluable performance space once patrons start the eighties-era sing-along (no kidding), thanks to the owners' DVD box set of music videos and a large screen TV behind the bar.Recommended Dishes
