You'd think that the sister restaurant to Taita in Capitol Hill would be envious of its sibling's Best New Restaurant nod from Westword, but with 5280's in-the-know editors simply saying, "go now," of Pikkas, that's far from the case:
- $39 ($86 value) for a three-course dinner for two people
- Start with an appetizer like the fresh, lime-infused ceviche classico
- Then, enjoy two soups or salads, and any two entrées on the menu
"Our first experience with Peruvian cuisine and it was great! It was our 36th anniversary and my wife loved it. The chef's dressing and marinades were unique, light and tasteful. If they offered them for sale, we would have bought several bottles." - OpenTable Reviewer
South American Flavor in Cherry Creek North
Chef Joseph "Pepito" Aparicio's penchant for fresh, seasonal ingredients is on full display at this warmly decorated restaurant. Seafood—a staple of a country with around 1,500 miles of coastline—logically plays a central role on this menu, which you'll discover as you browse shared appetizers of grilled octopus, delicate ceviche, flavorful scallops, or one of the other eye-catching options. Your choice of two soups—like the lentil or seafood consommé—or house salads with chef Pepito's secret dressing follows your appetizer, and precedes your main courses, which cover both land and sea. Go for the hearty lomo saltado—a spice-rubbed filet mignon that is the national dish of Peru—or try ravioli stuffed with chopped shrimp, ricotta portobellos, called "luxurious" by Zagat.
