2017: Queens Voted Pio Pio Best Latin Restaurant!
84-02 Northern Blvd., Jackson Heights, NY 11372. 718-426-4900
New York City’s premiere Peruvian restaurant since 1994, Pio Pio is at home at not one, but three locations Queens-wide, including its flagship in Rego Park. Its menu features authentic cuisine from Peru, as well as specialties like the restaurant’s famed Pollo a La Brasa (rotisserie chicken) and “Green Sauce.” Those, coupled with fellow signature items such as Pio Pio’s avocado salad, Chinese-Peruvian stir-fry, an array of ceviches and even some fresh juice pisco cocktails and sangria, help make it a standout in Latin cuisine. With two other locations in Jackson Heights (which occasionally features exciting live music), and a few throughout the city, it’s no question why Pio Pio is people’s favorite Latin restaurant in the borough.
