andina, we are proud to feature a native
Peruvian cooking staff representing both the traditional culinary
styles and their latest incarnation in the 'Novoandina' cuisine.
The Peruvian equivalent of our own Northwest Regional cuisine, Novoandina
aspires to revive native, pre-colonial ingredients and techniques
and incorporate them into a modern presentation beholden to the
highest international standards. Whereas traditional Peruvian cooking
has largely been an oral tradition, albeit an extremely elaborate
one, the Novoandina school embraces the rigors of formal culinary
training and standardization in order to preserve but also extend
and elaborate upon the wealth of Peruvian food history.
are sure that our unique combination of Peruvian home cooking and
haute cuisine will appeal to a broad range of palates and leave
plenty of room for continued exploration. Depending upon your mood and the particular social occasion, our restaurant
allows you to choose between our formal dining area and our more casual "Bar
Mestizo," renovated in the early months of 2005, and highlighting a raw-bar
of local and imported delicacies, and an inspired cocktail list of local
renown. Nightly, Bar Mestizo hosts live-music performances by celebrated and
rising local musicians.
