Despite the star studded inauguration on February 16-17, Lima restaurant Astrid y Gastón Casa Moreyra’s official opening date is March 18th. One week before the doors open I met with executive chef Diego Muñoz, to see how things were progressing.
Astrid y Gastón came in at #1 and D.O.M. at #2 at the initial edition of the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurant List, even though D.O.M. ranked considerably higher on the World’s Best list a few months ago. Comparing those restaurants is difficult. Pujol was at #3 and Central at #4. In my opinion any of those four restaurants could be #1 on any given day. With the top ten there was little argument – some might say one restaurant should up or down a spot or two – but the rest of the list was where there were some oddities.
