Small, weird, uncommon and devilishly crowded at its peak is not the a standard recipe for wild restaurant success. But in Limon's warm storefront space, chef-owner Alex Gurevich has singlehandedly sold Denver on authentic Novoandino cuisine -- a combination of modern Peruvian flavors and classical French technique that's complex, comforting and delicious all at the same time. Don't miss the excellent ceviche, which is even better when washed down with of the south-of-the-border-cool cocktails.
