The standard-bearer of novoandina cooking in Lima, Gastón Acurio’s flagship French-influenced restaurant, run by Lima native Diego Muñoz, remains a culinary tour de force. The seasonal menu features traditional Peruvian fare, but it’s the exquisite fusion specialties that make this a sublime fine-dining experience. The 28-course tasting menu showcases the depth and breadth of possibility here – just do it.
Guests may be treated to a kitchen visit to watch white-coated armies assembling plates with tweezer-precision. The setting is a gorgeous mansion with multiple dining rooms, and the service is excellent, including a helpful sommelier.
