This July, Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez and his partners, Gabriel and Jose Luis Gonzalez, opened their second site on Garrick Street, Covent Garden. The new 70 cover restaurant, LIMA Floral, introduces new ingredients and dishes never seen in the capital before. July is a significant month for the team, marking the second anniversary of LIMA in addition to the new opening.
Following a launch to critical acclaim in August 2012, LIMA became the first Peruvian restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star in September 2013. In reflection of this, the menu at the new site, overseen by Martinez and head chef Robert Ortiz, features some of LIMA’s most popular dishes alongside a menu of challenging Peruvian cuisine aimed at helping customers discover new flavours.
The restaurant has strong native influences throughout; large arched windows create a bright and airy dining room on the ground floor, while the basement bar is a comfortable drinking den, with a fun and high quality bar menu.
Located on the corner of Garrick Street and Floral Street, the new restaurant is within a historic building which was originally built as a monastery, and more recently home to The Forge restaurant. The new site, at 14 Garrick Street, seats approximately 70 customers, with an additional basement space of 30 covers, a specialist Pisco bar plus a private dining room.
