Lima. London

A very interesting new opening in Fitzrovia has attracted good reviews from respected critics including Fay Maschler.

What makes it stand out is not only that it is Peruvian, but the executive chef Virgilio Martinez headed up the kitchen of Astrid y Gaston in Madrid. Its Lima branch is currently number 35 in San Pellegrino's Worlds Best Restaurants list. Head of Astrid y Gaston is Gaston Acurio a world renowned and highly respected Peruvian chef.

There are to my knowledge less than a handful of Peruvian restaurants in London and we enjoyed our visit. All of the dishes were enjoyable with a number of ingredients specially imported from Peru. Prices are fair for the quality

Anyone else been?
