While most of the city's new crop of Peruvian restaurants are mere rotisserie chicken joints, punningly named Lima Limon is a full-blown restaurant, with picture windows that look out on the hurly burly of Roosevelt Avenue. In an interior plastered with mementos of the homeland, wonderful savory dishes are turned out, many of them incorporated into omnibus platters with huge volumes of rice, white beans, ceviches, etc. Our favorites include picante de mariscos (a seafood stew), ocopa (potatoes in a dark sauce featuring an herb called huacatay), and olluquito (dried beef braised with an odd tuber). 94-20 Roosevelt Avenue, Queens, 718-651-5002 (11372)
