In Manhattan’s concrete jungle lies a Peruvian oasis, serving fresh seafood and Peruvian culture. Owner Gaston Acurio took a leap with his first American outpost, La Mar, where the dishes are based on the traditional cuisine of small fishing villages from his South American home. Chef Victoriano López serves refreshing ceviche, rice, and seafood stews, alongside traditional anticuchos and dressings. With a friendly staff and a colorful, bright atmosphere, this hip and lively hot spot feels like a trip to Peru without leaving New York City. López was first introduced to the culinary craft making and selling street food in Lima. After training in some of the top restaurants around the world, he now shares his native fare with New Yorkers longing for a taste of South America.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Anticuchos: Skewered Grilled Veal Hearts with Anticucho Sauce, Tri-colored Fried Potatoes, Choclo, and Huacatay Sauce
  • Cebiche Elegance: Sashimi-grade Fluke, Red Onions, Peruvian Corn, Yam, and Leche de Tigre of Five Elements
