A Taste Of Central In Lima: An Epicurian Celebration Of Peru
Central in Lima, Peru is often cited as one of the best restaurants in South America (if not the best). Chef Martinez creates dishes utilizing ingredients from all corners of Peru. The meal was titled Elevations and featured dishes with clay sourced at 16,000 feet in the Andes mountains to Arapiana fish from the amazon and everywhere in between, the tastes are unexpected yet exquisite. As we approached the end to our trip in Peru, we found our experience at Central to be a fitting final epicurian tour that should not be missed. Consider checking out the restaurant at Lunch. The quieter lunch hour may afford you a better chance of chatting with Chef Martinez and taking a tour of the research library, chocolate chest, and rooftop garden, as we were fortunate enough to do.
The wine pairings with the tasting menu are the perfect companion.
