So glad London’s commitment to Peruvian food is unwavering. Lima Floral is casual sister to Michelin-starred Lima Fitzrovia. Very more-ish. Beef sudado with quinoa so good I am now the proud owner of a packet of the stuff. Monkfish fleshier & more tender than a wealthy Edwardian’s derrière. Desserts are a bit… though. Go downstairs for Pisco sours & bites
£45 a head – 3 courses and a Pisco sour
14 Garrick St, Covent Garden WC2E 9BJ
Menu appears to be utterly underwhelming and desserts at £10 a pop? I almost choked on my tap water. But my god those dishes are beautifully executed & damn tasty too. The haute couture of 2014 food. All cooked & prepped in an open kitchen. I’m still squealing over the beef carpaccio and lavender crème brûlée . I’ll give you a fiver if it doesn’t get a star.
£70 a head – 6 course tasting menu and half a bottle of wine
