Las Brasas will open at the end of August
Las Brasas, a Peruvian chicken restaurant, will be opening at its new Decatur location in a matter of days.
According to the answering machine at the restaurant, the business will reopen on Church street “at the end of August.”
There have also been some new additions to the website, though no menu is currently available. Las Brasas relocated to 614 Church Street from its previous location at 310 East Howard Avenue. Another restaurant, Doggy Dogg, has opened there.
The restaurant posted three general descriptions of what will be on the menu:
Anticuchos (Peruvian Barbecue) is a popular dish that originated in Peru in the pre-Columbian era. Anticuchos can be found on street-carts and street food stalls (anticucheras). The meat may be marinated in vinegar and spices (such as cumin, ají pepper and garlic) – While anticuchos can be made of any type of meat, the most popular are made of beef heart (anticuchos de corazón).
Cebiche is a seafood dish popular in the coastal regions of Central and South America. The dish is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers – the exact algorithms for the marinade are often jealously guarded and shrouded in secrecy. Cebiche is usually accompanied by side dishes that complement its flavors, such as potatoes or corn.
Peruvian chicken differs from the typical spit-roasted bird through the emphasis of charcoal and live fire, which impart a smokier, more woodsy flavor than a gas oven or electric heating element. It’s seasoned with a marinade comprised of spices like garlic, cumin, paprika, black pepper, huacatay (Peruvian black mint) and others.
It will also have the following hours:
Monday-Thursday 5 p.m. – 11 p.m.
Friday-Saturday 5 p.m.- 12 a.m.
Sunday 4 p.m. – 9 p.m.
