La Mar by Gaston Acurio at Mandarin Oriental, Miami is Chef Acurio’s third location in the United States, following his restaurants in San Francisco and Chicago. The cuisine will celebrate the authentic and diverse flavors of Peruvian gastronomy, ranging from upscale novo-Andean fare to Asian-Peruvian fusion and traditional seafood cebiche.

With a contemporary new design by Arquitectonica and interiors by Nathan/Pereira Arquitectura, La Mar by Gaston Acurio will offer 245 seats with a mix of indoor and outdoor options, exemplifying a clean, modern elegance that turns the spotlight towards exquisite cuisine. Three high-energy bars will provide distinctive culinary experiences and a personal look into the creation of signature cebiches, freshly grilled anticuchos and specialty cocktails. A private table for up to 10 guests will make for the ultimate dining experience.
