Right on the water's edge, this casually chic outpost, the chain's first outside Peru, imports real Peruvian flavors to San Francisco. Your waiter will start you out with a pile of potato and plantain chips with three dipping sauces, but after that you're on your own, choosing from a long list of ceviches, can't-miss causas (whipped potatoes topped with a choice of fish, shellfish, or vegetable salads), and everything from crisp, lightly deep-fried fish and shellfish
to soups and stews. The view of the water is especially enjoyable during lunch or a warm evening.
Pier 1½, between Washington and Jackson Sts., San Francisco, California, 94111, United States
