Lima Floral (bar)

Squaremeal Review of Lima Floral (bar) ?

Peru’s national spirit is gaining a cult following across the capital and this darkly lit subterranean bolt-hole beneath Lima Floral is one of the best places to get to grips with it – not least because you can also sample excellent piqueos (Peruvian-style tapas) from the restaurant above. The uninitiated should start by trying a range of piscos: either neat or in a carefully crafted cocktail. We’d recommend kicking off with a classic Pisco Sour (Luna Pisco, lime, sugar, egg white and Angostura bitters); if you’re feeling devilish, however, choose the Cuento de Diablo, a fiery mix of chilli pepper-infused pisco, orange liqueur, strawberry and lime. The bar’s South American-leaning wine list includes a duo of Peruvian bottles; give them a whirl alongside zesty black bream ceviche, grilled beef anticucho with corn purée or the silky butterfish tiradito.

There's a disconnect between quirky design elements on one hand, and fluoro 'Mind your head'-type safety signage on the other. In truth, I was a bit disappointed having entered through the gorgeous restaurant...

    Luxury Columnist :: Devilishly Good Pisco - Lima Floral

    Peruvian cooking is very hot right now, it’s so diverse and healthy. One of the best Peruvian restaurants in London is LIMA and it’s little sister, LIMA Floral serves up cuisine that’s hot in more ways than one, with devilishly good pisco. Handily located in Covent Garden, it’s housed in a very attractive brick building.

    LIMA Floral is split into two spaces, a main restaurant serving up innovative dishes overseen by Virgilio Martinez and Head Chef Robert Ortiz. Virgilio is chef patron of Central in Lima, Peru which is ranked number 4 in San Pellegrino’s list of the World’s 50 best restaurants. I’d been invited...
