Radish Cocktails, Tasting Menu at New Ocopa

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.
