Pio Pio Riko Greenpoint
A friend told me that this could be a good place to watch the World Cup final as they take reservations. Anyone has a telephone number for it? Precise details of where it is? And obviously, comments on the food/suggestions?
It's on 46th Street and Greenpoint Avenue in Sunnyside, Queens. I've only had their chicken for takeout. It was okay, not as good as the Pio Pio in Jackson Heights/Elmhurst (they are not related, by the way). I don't remember the range of prices, but an entire rotisseri chicken cost about $7. They have a full menu of Peruvian food, but I haven't tried it. It looks busy, though.

I was there once, about two weeks ago for a late lunch. It's a small place with about a dozen tables and doesn't look like the kind of place that usually gets reservation requests. They've got a fairly large menu but supposedly specialize in chicken. (The front of the menu states "El Mejor Pollo a la Brasa de Queens".) So that's what I tried. It was very dry. I've had much better Peruvian chicken at several other places in Queens. The rice, beans and tostones were acceptable, but I won't be back.
