Good Eats: Andina, Portland, Oregon

Andina  1314 NW Glisan St., (503) 228-9535.  L-D daily; $$$.  Reservations advised.  Specializing in contemporary Peruvian cuisine, this popular and sophisticated spot features a menu with shared plates in three sizes.  The servers are adept in advising how much food is enough for your party, and the more the merrier because you get to try more items.  Among the dishes my quartet liked best were the complimentary trio of dipping sauces served with the bread, a Spanish-style potato frittata with aioli, the flaky-crusted beef empanadas, and a super-tasty green mango-and-poached prawns cebiche. Oh, yeah, we also adored the Pisco Sour and Majito cocktails!
