Least noteworthy announcement of the day: the ocean is full of fish.

Pleasantly surprising noteworthy announcement of the day: so is Madison Square Park.

Welcome inside La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, an aquatically aligned parkside restaurant that’s specializing in elegant takes on citrus-cured cebiche, Peruvian street-cart skewers and the most authentic pisco cocktails outside of Lima, taking reservations now and opening Monday.

Though the address here clearly indicates NoMad, the dishes (lime-marinated yellowfin tuna) and decor (a bi-level chandelier of raindrops) suggest someplace a bit more south of the equator.

So while it’ll be perfectly acceptable to come here for a pisco punch and cebiche sampler, this sea-foam-hued eatery will really come in handy when the days start getting shorter, the nights start getting colder and your first choice for dinner is anywhere that feels like it’s on the Pacific.

And being that this place is steeped so heavily in Peruvian culture, you’re probably going to come across a handful of little touches that you wouldn’t find anywhere outside of the Andes. Specifically, indigenous beers, an exotic, duck-topped, black-mint gnocchi and an entire restaurant wall that’s covered in 7,620 kernels of Peruvian corn.

Making it part art installation and part side dish.
