The standard-bearer of novoandina cooking in Lima, Gastón Acurio’s flagship French-influenced restaurant as 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 such 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 sterling service, including a helpful sommelier.
