Lima's premier steak house is more than just a steak house, since in addition to prime cuts of beef, the menu features such Peruvian specialties as cochinillo (roast suckling pig) with tacu tacu (mixed rice and beans), and a sampling of six traditional dishes called the jarana criolla, which is enough food for two people. Beef lovers can choose between U.S. Angus sirloin and Peruvian lomo (filet mignon), which is less expensive. The salad bar is the most extensive in the city, and there are a few seafood items on the menu, too. The wine list has an excellent selection of Argentine and Chilean vintages. The airy dining room has minimal decoration, but the colorful bar in the corner has a wild collection of statues and handblown glass. The service is first-rate, and the desserts are to die for. It's no wonder the place is usually packed.
