Limon Report

farmersdaughter | Sep 17, 200412:26 PM

Limon has moved as of this week to a new location on Valencia just south of 16th Street (west side of the street). We went last night and had an excellent meal. Shared an appetizer of fried calamari, then I had the ceviche limon and my husband had lomo saltado. We shared a bottle of Ribera del Duero as well. The calamari was very good, not greasy, good texture, and the slightly spicy sauce was very good. The ceviche, a mixture of mussels, halibut, octopus and calamari, could not have been better. The texture of each fish was perfect and the flavors excellent. The octopus in particular was spectacularly tender. The dish also contained an interesting peruvian corn almost the size of lima beans, and a different type of peruvian corn that looked similar to popcorn which we really loved. The lomo saltado was very good, our only complaint being that some pieces were done to a different degree than others, but the texture of the meat didn't suffer in the more well-done pieces.

The new space is larger than the old with two levels of tables, and very well done, with the walls painted a pleasant shade of green. I really like the light fixtures.

Service was a bit on the slow side (perhaps getting used to serving a larger crowd, plus being in a new space?) but very friendly and professional.

Total tab for one appetizer, two mains and a bottle of wine with tax and tip was $85. (Our bottle of wine was about the same price as our food bill.)
