One of my favorite places right now, you could call it Mexican-Peruvian fusion, from the people who formerly brought you Del Campo. A few of the dishes here are among the best in town, in particular the Mango ceviche (yup), the fried chicken with mole (very subtle), and the corn risotto, called Huitsquites. I’ve had many of the other dishes, no disappointments, but those for me are the clear favorites. Not cheap, but the prices are not outrageous relative to value. I’m not so much into desserts, but if you like Latin desserts, try the Suspiro.
