PERUVIAN CUISINE COMES TO NOHO

Piere Loti at 31 Rathbone Place, W1T 1JH has been sold to Lima London Limited. The 2,100 sq ft restaurant is ideally located in the heart of Fitzrovia less than a minute walk to Charlotte Street to the north and Oxford Street to the south.

Peruvian cuisine despite being relatively unknown in the UK is seen by many as of the world’s best. Lima London will hope to capitalise on this on this with the opening of their first restaurant in the UK under the watchful eye of head chef Virgilio Martinez of Central Restaurant in Lima.

Lima will be a modern Peruvian restaurant with an open plan Ceviche Bar on the ground floor and a more informal bar in the basement specialising in Pisco based cocktails.
