Description of Limón:

The Limón concept was born on a Sunday afternoon, a time where family and friends enjoyed "Mama" Luz's family recipes, like ceviche, empanadas, lomo saltado, and homemade Sangria. With the invaluable support of Luz, the Castillo family opened the first Limón on July 11, 2002, in a 45-seat establishment in San Francisco's Mission District. Limón quickly became renowned for its delicious and savory Peruvian dishes, highlighting the influential flavors and styles of India, China, Japan, Italy, & Spain. After much success in the Bay, it was time for Limón to conquer The Central Valley. In December, 2008, Luz along with daughter Ana and son-n-law Aldo, introduced the concept of Peruvian cuisine to Fresno. Thanks to her family recipes, supportive staff, and enduring commitment to quality, Limón Fresno has been nominated "Best Newcomer" for the 2008 Best of the Valley Restaurant Awards & Fresno Magazine's "Best of Fresno."
