Jose Calvo-Perez of Fresca and Pasión restaurants in San Francisco is expanding to Pacifica with ~PUERTO 27 PERUVIAN KITCHEN AND PISCO BAR~. He will be opening the restaurant in the Pacifica Beach Hotel, which used to house a Thai restaurant. The format will be Peruvian small plates served family style. The 140-seat, two-level space has great views (the upstairs will be a banquet area) and a spacious bar, which will specialize in pisco (running the bar program is Enrico Sanchez, previously at La Mar and Limón). They are just finishing a refresh of the space and plan to open in mid-January. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served. 525 Crespi Dr. at Cabrillo Hwy., Pacifica.
