LimaSince opening at the end of June 2012, Lima the Peruvian restaurant Lima from Virgilio Martinez has become Michelin-starred and gained accolades: "One of the arresting qualities of dishes at Lima is their beauty," wrote Fay Maschler in the Evening Standard, while the Independent critic was "startled by its flavours, its zingy colours, its unexpectedness, and the charm of the waiters." For his first international solo venture Virgilio has appointed long-time friend, Robert Ortiz who hails from the Amazon region of Peru, as head chef of Lima. The Peruvian menu has a crudo (raw) section, which includes ceviches and tiraditos, starters and main courses, and a tasting menu. Whilst Lima sources much of its produce from within the UK, the restaurant will also bring carefully selected and unheard of ingredients from small producers in Peru. Diners can enjoy carapulcra, for example, dehydrated potatoes that are grown at 4,000 metres. The restaurant's interior has been designed by March & White, who were also behind recent renovations at the Arts Club and Hyde Park Apartments.
