Description

Gerry Sarmiento and his wife Adriana opened Piqueo to showcase the Peruvian cuisine of Sarmiento’s youth. Standout small plates include crispy chicken chicharrones, meaty yet delicate empanadas, and charred carrots. The full-size entrées, such as paella valenciana (with seafood, chicken, and chorizo), lomo saltado(steak with fried potatoes), and short ribs “seco” are noteworthy—as are fun entrées showcasing the Chinese and Italian influences on Peruvian cuisine, like linguini “saltado.” There’s a reasonably priced South American wine list, a variety of tequilas, and, of course, plenty of pisco sours on offer.
