Jora doesn’t have a separate brunch menu, but the colorful ceviches and fruity pisco sours at this Peruvian restaurant make it one of the best spots in LIC to kick off a boozy afternoon that turns into a boozy evening. Ignore the banquet chairs and stone vases of the formal dining room and head straight back to the bar area: a more fitting place to get loose on the weekends. It gets packed by early afternoon, and again at dinner. They don’t take reservations, but you won’t have to wait long for a table. Claim a hightop if you can for optimum people-watching, and follow your plate of ceviche mixto with aji de gallina and one of the best lomo saltados in the city.
