Fodor's Review

The José Andrés formula is pleasantly familiar to D.C. diners who have thronged his ever-growing empire of endlessly kicky ethnic small plates restaurants since Jaleo first opened in 1993. This hybrid of Peruvian and Chinese-Japanese styles, inspired by a 19th-century wave of migration to South America, is the latest addition to the stylish family. Chili-speckled dim sum coexists here with miso–pumpkin seed salad, a half-dozen potently flavorful fried-rice dishes, and a handful of offerings that hail exclusively from Peru. Cocktail stars are the macerados, Peruvian pisco liquors infused with fruit flavors. The decor, much like Andres's sensibility, is flirty but not so sceney that tourists would be turned off.
