Which means you're in the mood for something light. Something refreshing. Something that marries the minimal elegance of Japan with the fiery passion of Peru.
Introducing SuViche, your new South American den by way of Asia, soft-opening today for lunch and dinner downtown.
First, a few housekeeping items. The restaurant will be in soft-open mode until Monday for both lunch and a short dinner window (from 6 to 8pm). And during that time, as they work out the kinks (read: finalize the outdoor deck with ample sidewalk seating), your bill will be half off.
So you'll want to grab that Lima-born temptress who spent time teaching in Tokyo (you know, that one), take a seat at the indoor sushi bar and embark on a cross-cultural odyssey of raw fish.
You'll have 20 maki rolls to choose from, like the Nut Roll (shrimp, cilantro, macadamia nuts and cucumber topped with spicy mayo), and tapas like the not-briefly-named Tiradito en Crema de Ají Amarillo, thin sashimi-style cuts of fresh fish marinated in fresh-squeezed lime and spicy yellow pepper cream sauce.
Sometimes it's best to fight fire with fire.
