ABOUT

Technically, the executive chef is a celebrity back in Peru, perhaps the country’s most famous cook. But the real mastermind running the day-to-day is Diego Oka, who plates Insta-worthy dishes that taste just as good as they look. The menu largely highlights local catch and seafood you’d find on a trip to Peru, best exemplified with bright ceviches that somehow are full of tangy citrus flavor and also preserve the delicate taste of the fish. It’s just a bonus that La Mar’s balcony has the kind of view you’d expect at a top-notch seafood spot, the waves from the bay lapping against the seawall below.

RECOMMENDED DISH

Sandwiches prepared with croquettes, pickles, Swiss cheese, ham, roasted pork, and mustard on pressed Cuban bread are a crowd favorite.
