El Tambo in Ossining

El Tambo 57 Croton Ave (next to the library), Ossining. 432-7493.

this one tripped my "looks good" radar big-time. I got a menu (full array of staunch Peruvian faves) and looked around (bustling, professional, and diner-ish in the way that even really good Peruvian places can seem diner-ish), but I didn't try a bite, and there's nada on the Internets.

Anyone ever try it?

BTW, finally tried Los Abuelos in Ossining, a board favorite (which is why I was too full to eat at El Tambo). I need to try more, but my huerache de carnitas was a solid "B". The meat didn't sing. Very warm service, though, and the horchata's surprisingly good. Overall impression was: real good for Westchester, definitely authentic, but not really top quality. For top quality, hit Casa Villa in Stamford
