Back in June, we dressed you for your grand entrée into this funky Peruvian kitchen, and it's since taken home more foodie trophies than we have room to list! Chef Ricardo Zarate is a Lima-native with another spicy cantina in the 90210, but we're partial to the larger space off the 10 East (the graffitied walls and eccentric statues help). Ordering advice: The Pulpo Anticucho and Lomo Salfado are delectable!
