Part of the new wave of high-end restaurants that have opened in Cusco recently, Limo, on the second level of a colonial building on the plaza, looks like it will be sticking around for the long haul. Part of the local restaurant group headed by chef Coque Ossio that also includes Greens and the MAP Café, Limo's elegant décor makes for a unique dining experience. White chairs and splashes of red paint play off the original high-beamed ceilings and stone walls. It's hard to pin down the menu, as it bounces around from contemporary Peruvian to Japanese, often blending the two in unusual ways. There are plenty of standouts, like crunchy causa rolls with smoked trout and avocado, or alpaca steak served with a mushroom and ají amarillo quinotto.
