La Mar by Gaston Acurio will be open this wednesday in Mandarin Oriental Hotel Miami. The restaurant will feature the peruvian cuisine by the celebrity chef Gaston Acurio in a high-energy setting with dramatic water views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. Here is more information about the restaurant :
According to Urban Daddy :
“About that table by the water: it’ll have to wait. First, you’ve got some pit stops to make in the sleek, modern dining room. Start off at the ceviche bar by the entrance—you’ll know it by the bright-orange chairs and floor-to-ceiling garden wall. And the ceviche.
Then, the anticuchos bar for a bite of elevated street food—think skewers of octopus or asparagus.
And then maybe a quick lean at the bar bar. The chilcanos are sort of like Peruvian G&Ts, but with pisco instead of the G and ginger ale instead of the T.”
According to Miami New Times :
“When we asked Acurio why he decided to open in Miami, he responded: In Miami, you see Peruvian food growing faster than in any other city. Young guys are opening and small and medium-sized Peruvian restaurants. Mandarian Oriental recognized this and reached out. I said yes, immediately. He believes La Mar will be unlike other Peruvian restaurants in this city: We do Peruvian seafood. We are a cebicheria, our rule is to use the best seafood. Because this is the Mandarin Oriental, service will be top notch. It’s not a very formal restaurant, it’s casual. A place for celebrating with piscos.” written by Carina Ost.
According to Miami Eater :
“On the architectural front, the space, designed by Arquitectonica and Nathan/Pereira Arquitectura, will offer a sleek, modern setting with 245 indoor/outdoor seats, three bars with distinctive culinary experiences and a private table for up to 10 guests.” written by Ana Heretoiu.
