This large place is located in an old mansion and has several dining rooms for the two tasting menus, one for a la carte dining, a bar area as well as a test kitchen and rental space. Lots of interesting art decorates the walls, there are purse stools, fancy linens and dishes, and a couple amuse bouche as well as extra desserts sereved- if Michelin gets to Lima they want to be noticed. My understanding is that they really got the fine dining movement started in Lima and in the tasting area rooms it is a nicely dressed crowd enjoying their services. It was definitely more casual in the a la carte room, which also has a separate kitchen. Did I mention the place is large???
We got the longer of the tasting menus and chose our own bottles of wine rather than the wine pairings that they offered. One other feature of note was the bathroom that was a huge round circle, half of which housed men and the other half was women. The doors are actually curved and the other interesting feature is the small man or woman symbol located on the ceiling light fixture to indicate which side to go on. The staff were pleasant and very attentive and spoke great English. We were lucky to have Corina, a fellow cat lover, as our server. In a slight variation to my usual write up, I’ve included comments with the descriptions under each picture, but overall if you find yourself in Lima, give this place a try.
