We shared one ceviche since we had a late lunch at Astrid & Gaston. The restaurant is housed in a lovely building that also has La Barra, a bistro, and an event space in the courtyard. Outside is a small garden that has a cute area for kids.
Once inside we were seated in a spacious dining room that had great decor. The centerpieces were stacks of multi-colored wood that could be rotated. The butter was light and had some interesting flavors placed on top, couldn’t quite put my finger on it but was rather sweet. The amuse bouche was a mango sorbet with carrot and chili which I enjoyed with a glass of Spanish rose that lasted through the first course.
The petit fours arrived in a rather large box that opened up to reveal a paper pillow containing a marshmallow, liquid herb filled sphere, and a chocolate. The great food in Lima continued and there are a few left before I finally head home after over three weeks away.
