6/21/14 UPDATE: Reservations made for 20. Probably room for more if we cross that bridge. Viva Peru! Juerga!
I have been wanting to try this place for ages so what better time than Peruvian Independence Day! Well, it is one day before the actual day, but close enough. There will likely be Peruvian Festivals this weekend, so I will post those as well.
If you are not familiar with this cuisine, it’s nothing like the cuisines of Mexico or Cuba, but rather a mix of the Andes and Asia. In the late 19th century, Peru had a flood of Chinese and Japanese immigrants. It gave the world ceviche, tomatoes and potatoes. Fish is popular on the coast, but meat is eaten in the mountain regions.
Mi Peru's menu features about 40 items built upon such familiar foundations as beef, seafood and chicken, but accented with a decidedly South American flavor. The menu is right here: http://miperugrill.com/menu.php The space is a boxy, simple room, punctuated by bottles of sweet Peruvian red wine gracing the sideboards, and a plasma TV playing an Andean travel video mounted on the rear wall. Pulsating Afro-Peruvian music is heard on the sound system. The tables all look like this:
Cool! Come join us on this little culinary adventure!
Oh, for those unfamiliar with the RSVP fee, it is simple: you get it back upon arrival (minus the PayPal fee and rounded down), so in this case $10. We always try to get separate checks, but sometimes it isn't possible so bring cash too.
See you all in July!
