Executive Chef Sebastian Delgado has prepared a passion-fuelled, three-course menu and amuse bouche ($85 per person) for Valentineâ€™s Day, featuring the restaurantâ€™s signature Peruvian-meets-Japanese Nikkei flavours. Beautiful dishesâ€”showcasing subtle red and pink shadesâ€”such as Nikkei Nicoise Salad Tapa, Scallops and Nikkei Gazpacho, Bigeye Tuna with Tofu Rouille or Striploin with Peruvian Chimichurri will delight guests. The sweet finish is a Lucuma – Chocolate dessert with mango ice-cream and strawberry consommÃ©.
Bar Manager Kam Tabarraee has crafted a mesmerizing cocktail for the special occasion: Love is in the Air. The engaging libation is made for two and served on a ceramic plate ($42), and includes two componentsâ€”flutes filled with prosecco, and a serving jug consisting of a cocktail made with Aviation gin, Sombra Mezcal, rose and hibiscus syrup, raspberry and lemon shrub, dry ice, and rose petals. The cocktail is then poured into the flute, while the smoke from the dry ice and fresh rose petals create a dreamy setting.
