On October 28, Mesa residents in search of Peruvian fare will have to go elsewhere for dishes like Papa a la Huancaina, Chupe de Camarones, and Ceviche Mixto.
Contigo Peru is closing its doors.
Opened three years ago on the southwest corner of Guadalupe and Alma School Roads, the family-owned restaurant featured a lengthy menu of Peruvian dishes served up in a casual, pleasant atmosphere.
But the Contigo Peru family isn't closing their restaurant without one last goodbye.
A notice of the restaurant's website says goodbye to guests and invites them to attend a special celebration.
"To all our friends and clients:

It has been a wonderful 3 years and we like to thank all of our clients for their continued support which it made possible for Monica, myself and my family to make one of our dreams a reality.
