This fine place is worth knowing about. Sipan is a Peruvian Restaurant that has brought the tastes and aromas of South America to Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Excellent service, reasonable prices, and great tasting food are the secret to owner Augusto success, as he has a love and passion for his restaurants, and loves to introduce new patrons to a taste of Peru.
Every now and then you stumble upon a restaurant that is a great value, very casual, very unpretentuious and very ethnic. Sipan serves authentic Peruvian cuisine in a uniquely decorated setting. High embossed tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, colorfully hand painted Peruvian artwork, and dimly lit chandeliers is the setting for this vibrant and exciting restaurant.
The staff is friendly and the food is both intriguing and very good. There are many good seafood items on the menu, and the Peruvian specials tend to be wonderful. Zagat Readers boast that this “Upper West Side Peruvian standout is like taking a quick trip below the equator without the plane ride!”
Diners come to Sipan from all over New York City for its fine traditional Peruvian dishes and its pleasant atmosphere, but you can just as easily enjoy your meal at home. Ceviche appetizers - the Peruvian version of sushi-are a prime attraction. And while a vegetarian dish doesn't seem traditionally Peruvian, the Amazonas succesfully balances the strong flavors of Portobelo mushrooms, asparagus, spinach, and sweet potato fries with a cool white cheese.
It is worth a trip uptown.
