And the Peruvian eateries keep on coming. Hot on the heels of Jalea and La Candela Bistro in Hicksville, Las Viñas in Mineola and The Inkan in Garden City Park, is La Vicharra Grill. It takes over the Landing Road corner spot vacated a few years back by Anthony’s.

The Grill, which opened in early February, is an offshoot of the original La Vicharra, a takeout-oriented rotisserie chicken shop on School Street in downtown Glen Cove.

The extensive menu covers all the traditional Peruvian bases. Appetizers ($8 to $16) include stuffed avocado, various ceviches, anticucho (grilled veal hearts), salchipapa (hot dog slices over French fries) and sliced potato in creamy cheese sauce (the potato originated in Peru and is an MVP on any Peruvian menu).

Mains ($11 to $21, though most are well under $20) include grilled steaks, chicken and beef cutlets, fried chicken, tallarin (spaghetti) with various accompaniments, chaufa (fried rice) and the intriguing “aeropuerto con carne o pollo: fried rice with Chinese linguine with mixed beef or chicken.

La Vicharra Grill, 58-60 Landing Rd., Glen Cove, 516-801-1314
