    La Mar is a big restaurant with a big menu. This is Peruvian food—a cuisine influenced by the whole world and jacked up with heat and—filtered through Chef Gaston Acurio’s European training.

    Try the "Nikei," with tuna, Japanese cucumber, daikon, nori, & tamarind, or even the "classic," which is marinated in a "tiger's milk" of ridiculously hot peppers. Read more

    A total classic. First-timers, go samplers: ceviche sampler plus empanada sampler makes a great meal for two -- and heck, throw in a rollito, too.

    Go for happy hour for half off pisco cocktails. It's a cebicheria, so duh, get the ceviche! There's a sampler platter of 4 different ceviches if you have a hard time deciding.
