Peruvian

The cuisine of Peru has many influences—Spanish, African, Chinese and Japanese, among them—making it a (perhaps the) compelling cuisine of the early 21st century. We have one major Peruvian restaurant, Henderson’s Mi Peru (1450 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway, 220-4652), the place for ceviche, fried-rice dishes called chaufas, spit-roasted chicken with aji (a hot pepper sauce) and other specialties. Expect more Peruano dishes to pop up here soon.

Ring-a-Ding-Ding

Following the kitchen’s lead, Fox Restaurant Concepts beverage manager Mat Snapp is committed to using house-made syrups and infusions at Culinary Dropout wherever possible. “Everything tastes better when you put time, effort and energy into it,” Snapp says. His original creation, Bells & Whistles, actually had its beginnings in the kitchen, at a barbecue festival’s cocktail competition. “I wanted a cocktail that mirrored all the great things about barbecue: some smokiness, some sweetness and some heat.” Simple syrup infused with charred bell pepper and jalapeño does the trick nicely.
