Lima Restaurant

Lima Restaurant, web site (Flash and music) 1401 K Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-789-2800 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | WaPo | MenuPages | City Paper | Yelp]

Peruvian is trendy now and this place is hot. It is a wonderful and diverse cuisine. But what is this place? The reviews indicate a lot of citrus-cooked fish (OK) and lots of Spanish dishes. The verdict remains out…

Update November, 2006: The new hip place, and the best ceviche in town, without a doubt. Not cheap and hard to get in on Friday and Saturday. Parts of the décor are stunningly attractive, while other parts resemble a bad high school cafeteria. Friendly service. I thought the short ribs were excellent, plus of course the ceviche. I recommend focusing on the appetizers. I don’t feel I need to go here often, and I suspect that not all the menu items (of course I picked the best ones) are good. But it is definitely a place worth trying. I’ll add that at least half the menu items are not “Peruvian,” in the classic sense, but the same could be said for the hot spots in Lima, Peru. This place is aptly named.

  3. We just got back from dinner at Lima, and… I guess we were expecting something more ethnic. They have ceviches, but that was about the only thing on the menu that I wouldn’t expect to see at any other high-end restaurant.

    According to its website, Lima (meaning lime) offers “Latin-infused International cuisine.” The chef is from Cuba. As I read it, this is not intended to be a Peruvian restaurant.
