If you never learned to share back in kindergarten, don’t go to Tio Lucho’s in Virginia Highlands. Every dish, from the aptly named shareables like crispy potatoes with a mix of Peruvian sauces to the large plates like crispy fried shrimp, is designed to be divvied up at your table. The menu features all the staples of Peruvian cuisine from ceviche and causa to lomo saltado. There are house plants adorning every surface and a mix of Latin music and pop hits wafting from the speakers as you sip on their pisco sour (topped with a foam Peru flag) and sample the crab hushpuppies. With food this good, it’s hard to remember how to share.
