As the cold winds blow, there’s nothing like a trip to C-Viche, which will transport you to more tropical climes with its menu of Ibero-American fare. Even better, there’s now more C-Viche to love since the restaurant has expanded to include a second location in Shorewood.

Start off with a pisco sour and the ceviche of the day. Then move on to Peruvian anticuchos, which offer up bites of perfectly juicy, beefy flavor and patatas bravas with delicious housemade chorizo. From there, let your palate lead you. Be sure to ask about the specials; we had a lovely plate of tender fried soft shell crab skewers on a recent visit (pictured). If there’s room for dessert, don’t miss the tres leches cake, which contains a hint of Peruvian pisco.

Recommended: Daily ceviche specials, patatas bravas, shrimp mole enchiladas, tres leches cake; they also have a weekend-worthy brunch
