Fodor's Expert Review Marcelo Batata

$$ Cusco Peruvian Fodor's Choice

Start with a drink made from one of the many pisco infusions made in-house and then move on to the Peruvian fusion that is Batata's specialty, in particular, mouthwatering alpaca steaks. With a rooftop terrace and a cozy interior dining room, the vibe here is a sweet spot of upscale-but-friendly and romantic. The wine list is continuously improving, and you may be able to get in a wine or pisco tasting if you ask ahead of time. The chef-owner also offers cooking classes, which include a trip to the local market for the freshest ingredients.
