Peruvian Comes to Cortland
After much snooping, I found out that chef Carlos Altamirano, who also owns Mochica (937 Harrison, near Fifth Street), will take over the old Moki's space at 830 Cortland in Bernal Heights and reopen it as Piqueos before the end of the year. He'll serve Peruvian tapas that will span multiple regions, and is traveling to Peru's rain forests next month to do more research.
Prices will be $7-$10. The restaurant will open for lunch and dinner, and possibly brunch. It will seat around 90, including the expanded enclosed patio built by the former owners. The look will be more sophisticated than Mochica, but will still use bright, warm colors.
