Chef Jose Victorio Alarcon guarantees a new vibe the next time you step into Puerto 511, downtown’s Peruvian restaurant.
Puerto 511 closed for renovations in December after more than three years in business, and will reopen by the first week of February with a different look.
“This place, this building is old. I change everything,” including the floors, bars, windows, chairs and kitchen, Alarcon said. The new color scheme will feature lots of browns and grays.
It’s all in hopes of making the space more comfortable for diners, he said.
The menu, however, will still boast fan favorites, along with a handful of new seafood and ceviche dishes. Prix-fixe menus will continue on Fridays and Saturdays, “because people love the style,” Alarcon said.
