It’s a family affair at Latin Bites Cebiche & Pisco Bar, formerly Latin Bites, with Chef Chef Roberto Castre, (recently voted ‘Chef of the Year’ by Eater.com) Rita Castre and brother in law Carlos Ramos, Peruvian natives with backgrounds in business and hospitality. You may have tried them at their former smaller locale in downtown, now they have a new name and new location in the Uptown area. They have devised a menu that offers the same extensive array of both small and larger plates. They have infused their restaurant with a serious love of Peruvian culture that is evident in the welcoming interior of their new space in the Uptown area.
They are focusing on Peru’s most popular dish and beverage--the cebiche and Pisco, plus 20 dishes, and the dinner menu has more grill options and specialties-- from traditional dishes like the Papas a la Crema or Empanadas to more fusion offerings, including the Asian-style Cebiche Chifero, tuna cebiche infused in aji Amarillo, carrots, red onions, snow peas, peanuts and served on a wonton tube with Peruvian corn sweet potatoes. Their spacious chic dining room is great for a meal, but also stop by for their happy hours at their Pisco bar and terrace for some of their signature cocktails.
