From a press release:
“Ocopa Peruvian Restaurant, located at 1324 H St. NE, has increased its capacity by adding a beautiful all season patio. Nearing their 1 year anniversary on the trendy H St. NE, Ocopa has added over 30 additional seats, as well as a 10 seat bar with Tiki themed cocktails and Pisco, frozen upon request. Chef Carlos Delgado is excited about the additional space and looks forward to offering a late night menu in the near future.
“We are starting with the Cebiche Bar as an added feature to the patio and hopefully, we’ll be able to add on some grill options for those looking to stay later in the evening”, says Delgado.
Ocopa carries on the “wow” factor with the addition of the patio, focusing on incredible Peruvian cuisine and cocktails in a trendy, casual space. Whether it’s Tupac or traditional salsa music that is filling the space, the vibe is cool and energetic. A continuation of graffiti decorated walls by Mas Paz and a rustic, industrial feel is carried from the inside out. Guests are sure to make this a new gathering place for brunch and dinner all year long.
The full menu is available on the patio. The space will also allow Ocopa to accommodate parties of 4 or more. The original interior space is known for its open kitchen and intimate seating. Owners, Italo Rodriguez and Eddie Migues, understood the demand for larger parties and have acted accordingly by doubling the space.
Ocopa will be celebrating the completion of the patio on Saturday, June 27th with specialty cocktails and small plates all evening. The beverage program, led by mixologist Giancarlo Cruz (also a native of Peru), features fun, delicious Peruvian drinks and lots of play time with liquid nitrogen. Expect Pisco Punch sorbet and cocktails that are not only exquisite in flavors but extremely entertaining to watch while made. Chef Carlos and Mixologist Giancarlo both agree that this summer at Ocopa will look a lot like home!”
