Fodor's Expert Review La Mar by Gaston Acurio
Don't have time to make a foodie pilgrimage to Lima, Peru? Not to worry; the next best thing beckons in downtown Miami, where Peruvian celebrity-chef Gaston Acurio dazzles with a sublime menu and an atmospheric, bay-side setting to match. Tour the far corners of Peru through La Mar’s signature cebiches (ceviche) and tiraditos (similar to crudo), freshly grilled skewers of street-style anticuchos, causa dishes (mashed potato topped with meat and vegetable toppings), and national libations, like the pisco sour. Eat inside the funky, contemporary, design-driven restaurant, replete with a living garden wall and an open anticucho kitchen and lively cebiche bar, or bask in the Miami sun on the expansive terrace.
