Fodor's Expert Review ámaZ

$$$ Miraflores Peruvian
Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino (of Malabar fame) spent years exploring the Peruvian Amazon and experimenting with its ingredients and traditional recipes before opening ámaZ, where you can experience the flavors of the rain forest in the urban jungle. His versions of traditional Amazonian dishes such as pataraschca (catfish filet cooked in a bijau leaf), or tacacho (fried plantain-and-smoked-pork balls) are excellent, but so are inventions like chunks of paiche (Amazon fish) stewed in coconut milk. Seating is in the dark dining room in back or a brighter front room hemmed by foliage and tropical colors.
