The ceviches and tiraditos (crudos) at this refurbished cottage near the historic King William neighborhood will brighten any day with their dynamic Peruvian flavors. The Lima-style carretillero ceviche (so named because it’s often sold from street carts) is a veritable taste sensation, featuring the citrusy-spicy marinade that gives the restaurant its name along with shrimp, tender striped bass, sweet potato, and canchita (a pico de gallo–like relish). Also satisfying is the Peruvian comfort food lomo saltado, a stir-fry of tenderloin, red onion, and tomato with chunky fried potatoes and white rice. Picarones (sweet potato doughnuts) with fig syrup hit all the right notes for dessert.
