Peruvian spot for pollo a la brasa.

Restaurant Details

This tiny Peruvian spot replaced the Ecuadoran Mr. Pollo and apparently inherited its rotisserie oven--but not the tasty charcoal-fired pollo a la brasa that the former tenant put out. The chickens I've had the misfortune to taste here were dry, too dark, underseasoned, and appeared to have been held long past their value as even vulture bait. It just may be that Fina Estampa is suffering from the catch-22 of not winning enough business to turn over a consistently fresh and delicious product—-it certainly doesn't seem to be drawing any customers away form the busy Brasa Roja down the street, or the magnificent D'Candela a little bit further. There's also a limited menu of Peruvian specialties to round things out.
