If you have recently discovered the palate-pleasing joy that is Peruvian roasted chicken, wait until you taste what the kitchen at Raymi is whipping up. The passion project of three brothers on a mission to please, Raymi celebrates the diverse culinary traditions of South America by infusing them with aspects of Japanese, Chinese and Spanish flavors that have taken root in the region. Sip some spicy pisco twists on classic cocktails, like a pisco mojadito with fresh crushed mint. It would be a shame to miss out on the duck confit with jasmine rice, but an absolute crime to skip the hamachi ceviche.
