A new Connecticut restaurant that offers contemporary Peruvian cuisine has drawn praise from some of its first reviewers.
Chacra Pisco Bar, located in New Haven, at 152 Temple St., held its grand opening in late September.
The eatery offers appetizers such as Peruvian Street Corn and Yuca Frita, along with a variety of seafood dishes, including Crab Meat and Lobster, Octopus and Tuna Tiradito, along with a marinated deep-fried calamari dish made with scallops, shrimp, and yuca fries.
Guests can also select from a variety of salads and chicken or pork dishes.
"Highly recommended," Brian D. wrote in a Google review. "The crab meat & lobster appetizer was amazing. The Lomo Saltado entrée was equally phenomenal. The food, staff, and atmosphere provided for a great experience all around. You must try it."
The menu also features cocktails, such as dragon fruit mojitos, the "Cusco Mule," and classic margaritas. Learn more about the restaurant's menu here.
