CHIMU (Brooklyn, NY)
Our friends Jon and Marissa wanted to meet us for dinner, so we chose a place by their apartment called Chimu. I’ve seen this place for years — it’s right next to Union Pool — but I’ve never been able to try it until now. I had the Lomo Saltado — skirt steak, white rice, onions, tomatoes and peppers served over French fries (which was a nice surprise) — and Jesse had the Jalea, mixed fried seafood “Peruvian-style” with salsa criolla.
I loved my entree (it was even great the next night as leftovers, with a fried egg), and though Jesse enjoyed his meal, he thought it would be more “mixed seafood” — less squid and more shellfish. We’d definitely go here again to try other dishes.
