La Mar Cebicheria Peruana

  • Peruvian

Updated 05/05/2014

Fodor's Review

Right on the water's edge, the casually chic La Mar is divided into three areas: a lounge with a long ceviche bar where diners watch the chefs put plates together; the Pisco Bar facing the Embarcadero, where bartenders mix cocktails based on Peru's famed Pisco brandy; and a bright blue and whitewashed dining room overlooking an outdoor patio and the bay. Your waiter will start you out with a pile of potato and plantain chips with three dipping sauces, but after that you're

on your own, choosing from a long list of ceviches, can't-miss causas (whipped potatoes topped with a choice of fish, shellfish, or vegetable salads), and everything from crisp, lightly deep-fried fish and shellfish to soups and stews and rice dishes, many spiked with Peruvian chilies. The original La Mar is in Lima, Peru. San Francisco was the first stop in its campaign to open a string of cebicherias across the United States and Latin America. The view of the water is especially enjoyable during lunch or a warm evening.
