MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Bring a group of friends and keep the pisco coming at this José Andrés marvel, where the vibrant décor and bold, flavorful cuisine are anything but humdrum. The dining room is a feast for the eyes, featuring sky-high ceilings decked out with red glass lamps and neon lights. Specialty ingredients from Peru find their way into many of this kitchen's dishes, and the menu brings together three major culinary influences in the country: Chinese, Japanese and Criollo. Thick and buttery slices of Ora King salmon ceviche arrive in a pool of tart yuzu juice, garnished with creamy avocado, trout roe and whole sweetie drop peppers. Meanwhile, a wonderfully seasoned stir-fry of smoky lomo saltado gets added crunch from a nest of fried potato sticks.
