The Dining Experience at Andina
Next, we shared a small salad, which was plenty for two. The salad is one of their small plates that can come in small, medium, or large. All their Peruvian tapas can be ordered that way. Although there were lots of tapas on the menu the salad was the only one we tried.
Mind Blowing Main Courses!
Last, but not least: DESSERT!
Live Music at Andina
Andina also has great nightlife. Over in the restaurant’s Bar Mestizo, some of the city’s most talented musicians play live Latin music every night of the week with no cover charge. They celebrate cultural diversity with musicians from Japan, Puerto Rico, Peru, Brazil, Cuba, and Mexico performing nightly.
During the week, musicians play intimate solo sessions and on Friday and Saturday nights, a duo or full band plays lively rhythms that evoke the spirit of Latin America.
Bar Mestizo is adjacent to Andina’s dining room and open kitchen in the historic Pennington Building in The Pearl, Bar Mestizo showcases the Peruvian culture with small touches that reflect the importance of food and community.
Guests can sip on a traditional Peruvian Pisco Sour, Sacsayhuamán, or Bachiche to a fiery flamenco guitar performance or sample modern Peruvian tapas from Executive Chef Dustin Koerner while a performer serenades the room with a Bossa Nova.
Live music is performed Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m., with no cover charge.
