WCBS DINING DIARY 6269, MONDAY, OCTOBER 4TH, 2010 Iím Bob Lape with Dining Diary. Be on the lookout for Viru, an exciting new restaurant off Central Park Avenue in Yonkers. It proclaims Fine Peruvian Cuisine, and means it! Itís near the Outback Steakhouse in a small strip mall. Viru is a roomy restaurant handsomely decorated in vibrant colors with ethnic wall hangings and Peruvian music. The lively ceviches and other seafood, chicken and meat items are presented with real artfulness, and good taste. Causa limena de pollo translates as cold mashed yellow potato Ė Peru has thousands of different spuds Ė is infused with key lime juice, pressed into a cake with avocado and stuffed with chicken. A great start! Lamb shank is simmered in black beer, garlic, cilantro and onion. The Viru menu was fully and cordially explained by our wait staffer Diana Bonsignore, a veteran of a number of great kitchens. Viru is a real find and a gem among South American eateries anywhere. Open for Lunch and Dinner at 1727 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers. Thatís Dining Diary. Iím Bob Lape, WCBS 880.<br />

I was thrilled to find out that there was a Peruvian restaurant in Yonkers!! Viru has a magnificent menu that covers a wide range of dishes. I love Latin food but ever since I discovered Peruvian food in Manhattan, it's become my favorite cuisine. I'm in the Bronx so I used to frequent places in the Village but having Viru in Yonkers makes it easier for me. What I like about their food is that it is fresh and light. I don't feel like I have over indulged although I have gone out for dinner. Besides, the place is fun and full of color and good vibes. The staff are attentive to my needs and I like that. I've been there twice and plan on going back. If you are in the neighborhood, Viru is a must! I've gone on a Friday and then on a Saturday evening and it was packed. I advise making reservations.
