Ají Peruvian Restaurant
Peruvian-born chef Pilar Albernas and her family opened Ají Peruvian Restaurant in 2011, naming the eatery after the Peruvian word for "pepper." True to their name, Ají imports many varieties of peppers to flavor its authentic cuisine. Maize tamales steamed in banana leaves, Peruvian rotisserie chicken, and Andean corn salad with fresh cheese and an herb dressing are among the kitchen's specialties. Many dishes can be made vegetarian or vegan, and at the end of meals, diners can sweeten palates with desserts such as picarones—Peruvian donuts made with Andean squash and sweet potato.
