There's not a more elegant dining room than Perroquet, tucked away in the Country Club Lima Hotel. You feel pampered in the main room, with its upholstered chairs and tables almost overloaded with polished crystal and china. If it's a warm enough evening, you might prefer the terrace and its brass chandeliers. The atmosphere never feels stuffy, and neither does the menu. There are traditional dishes, but they have a modern flair. Try the lamb shank roasted for three hours in red wine and cilantro seeds, the artichoke ravioli, or the lemony corvina (sea bass) with kichwa (an Andean grain). Or stop by for Sunday brunch.
