Sipan: Peruvian restaurant at 94th & Amsterdam
We tried this place on Friday night and had a very good meal. They do an exceptional swordfish: four skewers with some of the most delicious, plump morsels of swordfish that I have ever tasted. It was accompanied by grilled sweet potatoes and a dipping sauce made of olive oil, garlic, and cheese, I think.
Our appetizers were not quite as stellar as our entrees, and ended up being quite similar to each other: one consisted of big hunks of shrimp, avocado, and potatoes, more or less coated in a mayonnaise; the other was lump crabmeat (also dressed in the mayonnaise) on top of avocado and pureed potatoes. If I were to do it again, I'd get just one of these (probably the shrimp) and a salad instead.
The dessert list was short: rice pudding, chocolate mousse, and a selection of sorbets, so we did not partake.
The atmosphere is very nice, and when you first come upon the restaurant it definitely stands apart from anything else you might encounter in the neighborhood.
Apps. were $8-10, entrees $13-19.
