Fodor's Expert Review Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar

$$ Dupont Circle and Logan Circle Peruvian Fodor's Choice
Visit South America without leaving the Golden Triangle at Pisco y Nazca, a modern Peruvian restaurant known for its authentic food (indeed, the team here travels to Peru at least once a year to learn about new dishes and techniques). Start with a pisco sour—the bar makes the traditional version of Peru's national cocktail as well as creative, tropically flavored varieties—and then choose from dishes that include colorful seviche plates, mini causa rellenas (a potato dish), and lomo saltado (stir-fried beef). The happy hour, known as "la hora loca," is popular with young professionals who work in the neighborhood and who appreciate the $6 glasses of wine, a steal in Washington, D.C.
