Lucky Chicken opens in Durham’s Northgate Mall

Lucky Chicken, a Peruvian chicken restaurant with locations in Cary and Clayton, has opened a third location in Durham.

The new location will be at Durham’s Northgate Mall. Owner Esther Ortiz has been serving the popular Peruvian rotisserie chicken and other dishes in the Triangle since 2008.

“We are bringing vitality to the space with the colors and energy of my Peruvian heritage, and are introducing popular dishes from our other locations to Northgate,” said Ortiz in a press release Thursday.

Lucky Chicken’s menu offers that signature pollo a la brasa (rotisserie chicken), ceviche and suspiro a la limena or dessert custard. The press release said: “The popular South American cuisine incorporates Spanish, Italian, African, and Japanese culinary cultures and features chicken, beef, seafood, and vegetarian options along with specialty Peruvian sodas and beverages.”

Greg Cox, the N&O’s longtime restaurant critic, named Lucky Chicken as the best Peruvian restaurant in the Triangle in 2011.
