Radish Cocktails, Tasting Menu at New Ocopa

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Peruvian restaurant Ocopa opened last week in the Atlas District. The ambitious restaurant from chef Carlos Delgado has shared a few more details on what to expect from the place at 1324 H St. NE. Here are five takeaways:

· Owner Italo Rodriguez has been an investor in H Street businesses for more than 20 years. He fell in love with Peru's food after living there for three years (Delgado is a native of Peru).

· The restaurant was designed by architect Demetrios Stafilatos and has an open kitchen, 28 seats and a patio, as well as graffiti art-inspired decor. The restaurant aims to recapture memories of the chef's grandmother's kitchen.

· On the menu: plenty of cebiche, causitas (a whipped potato dish), Maki-ruvian and Tiraditos (Peruvian-style sashimi) and more. Entrees range from confit hen ravioli to beef tripe. The restaurant has its own hydroponics system fueling its ingredients. Here are all the full menus.

· Glendon Hartley is behind the beverage menu, with a selection of more than 20 Piscos, cocktails like the Red Radish Chilcano, homemade sodas and more.

· The restaurant will add a Chef's Tasting Menu on Mondays, as well as lunch, starting Aug. 18.
