Central Restaurante Review

Hidden on a residential street a few blocks south of the Larcomar shopping center is one of Lima's hottest restaurants. The refurbished childhood home of chef Virgilio Martínez, it is now a chic, airy venue for his culinary talents. After years working in some of the best kitchens of Europe and Asia, Martínez returned to Peru to celebrate his country's biodiversity by creating memorable meals using fresh, often organic ingredients. He changes the menu every six months, but it always includes such local delicacies as paiche (an Amazon fish), scallops, suckling pig, and baby goat stewed overnight. This place is packed most nights.
