On a residential street, amid condo towers, this funky eatery is a superb destination for those who are looking to just kick back with a good cocktail and food in a lively atmosphere. The setting feels like a piece of pop art: There are multicolored recycled plastic bottles lining the ceiling, a backlit image of a vulture glows at one end, and photos show old-school Lima street scenes. The chef, James Berckemeyer, who has worked in several Michelin three-star restaurants in Spain, has put together an eclectic menu of mostly small plates like Chinese steamed buns with pork belly, octopus with quinoa, and beef cheeks that are cooked over low heat for 36 hours. Cocktails are driven by house-made sodas, which are infused with ingredients like camu camu or ginger and basil.
