Announcing a new Meetup for The World Food Lover's Dining Out Group!
What: Peruvian in Jackson Heights
When: Wednesday, February 3,[masked]:30 PM
Price: $10.00 per person
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
This will be a Peruvian meal at Urubamba, served family-style, with menu arranged by your event organizer. Peruvian cooking is distinguished by its diversity of cultural influences, including Incan, Spanish, Far East Asian and African. Peppers, often used in the wide array of sauces found in this cuisine, are applied discriminately, enhancing without overpowering.
Total cost of food will run ~$30 per person. Drinks are extra, but feel free to bring your own alcoholic beverages; there is a $5 corking fee per bottle of wine. Please reserve your spot with a non-refundable $10 PayPal deposit, which will be credited to your dining tab.
The restaurant is a 5-10 minute walk from the 82nd St-Jackson Heights or 90th St-Elmhurst Ave stops on the 7 line.
