La Mar Cebicheria
Av Mariscal La Mar 770, Miraflores 15074, Peru
Lunch at La MarWith its cozy beach style, La Mar is the perfect spot for a laid-back weekend lunch. Because it’s top chef Gastón Acúrio's cevicheria, a wait is almost guaranteed, but you can try a variety of tragos e piqueos at the bar before you get a table. I recommend starting with the oysters appetizer and the ceviche tasting menu. Mains are hard to choose: The grilled fish and the Asian-inspired dishes are great. The rice dish arroz de marisco is also noteworthy. Wash everything down with a cocktail such as the Cholopolitan or the Chincha Punch. All the drinks are made with local ingredients like chicha, camu camu, and pisco. It'll be a slow lunch, and to full enjoy it, plan on spending the whole afternoon here. You may even get lucky and meet the chef.
