El Comercio Peru reports (El restaurante Central volverá a abrir sus puertas este lunes | El Comercio Perú) that the restaurant Central in Lima, Peru will reopen its doors March 1st with brilliant chef Virgillo Martinez remaining at the helm. The restaurant (which I reviewed here) was one of the most exciting new restaurants in Lima in 2009, but it unfortunately had to close its doors because of a dispute with neighboring restaurant La Bodega de la Trattoria and the municipality of Miraflores. Earlier reports said the restaurant had closed permanently and Martinez was off to London.
