If some fool still thinks that intriguing new restaurants need to be in trendy neighborhoods, take him or her to Lima Taverna and see if a spoonful of leche de tigre will change his or her mind ($9). It’s one of the restaurant’s three ceviche offerings, all of which start with fresh whitefish and a whole lot of lime juice. The classic ceviche is whitefish marinated in lime juice and served in a bowl with extras, including both plain and crunchy-toasted choclo, the Peruvian sweet corn that’s similar in size and texture to hominy. There’s also a ceviche mixto, adding shrimp and calamari. Say yes, also, to just about any main course involving seafood. The staff’s recommendation is, justifiably, pescado a lo macho, which — beyond being one of the world’s great dish names — is a big, boisterous parade of seafood, almost all of it perfectly cooked. this is the kind of small business you love to cheer for. Its owners are passionate, its style is invigorating and, most important, its pescado, pork chops and ceviche are terrific.
