Owner Doris Pratt Rodriguez has been bringing Peruvian food to the Pearl District in impressive quantities for some years now—the place is jam-packed most nights. Bright colors and cacti set the tone for the warm welcome inside. Chef Hank Costello puts Peru on the plate, with a few modern tweaks, and Sommelier Ken Collura, who has mentored many a young wine industry pro in Portland, expertly pairs Costello’s dishes with South American, Oregonian, and Old World wines. Young Pastry Chef Megan Jeans sticks to the traditions of Peruvian pastry to round out the meal. Side note: this is one of the few places in town you can get a Sexy Woman for under $20 dollars—in this case Mixologist Greg Hoitsma’s bold Sacsayhuamán.
