The team behind Tambo22 once ran the now shuttered Taranta, an Italian-Peruvian spot that was one of our favorite restaurants in the North End. While we’re very sad about that particular closing, this great Peruvian place almost makes up for it. Start off with a couple of drinks (we like the chicha morada pisco sour) before making your way through the menu. Since everything is good, you could almost pick randomly, but don’t forget to ask about the specials too.
