Peruvian Partings: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, December 21-25
No more Peruvian at Pikkas in Cherry Creek.
Yesterday we reported that Peruvian bistro Limon closed on 17th Avenue after nearly ten years in business. And it turns out that another Peruvian eatery closed earlier this month: Pikkas in Cherry Creek has also gone dark.
Two newer restaurants downtown, Viand and Reunion Gastropub & Wine Bar, announced they'll be opening their doors to the homeless from 4 to 6 p.m. on Christmas Day for a free turkey dinner. Several sides will be included in the meal and those in need will be able to eat at the restaurants or take their dinners to-go. Viand and Reunion opened this fall in the dual restaurant space previously occupied by Le Chateau and Prime Steakhouse at 15th and Arapahoe streets.
