Pronounced ‘barra eme,’ this restaurant is strongly influenced by Peruvian street food. But the idea here isn’t to recreate the same meals you could enjoy in the streets of Lima; rather, the dishes have been transformed into something entirely new with a heavy helping of Asian cuisine added in. The result is a menu that includes items like ceviche with avocado and Thai flavourings, as well as plenty of Pisco Sours. Order a drink and some of the mussels with yellow ají sauce to start.
Filled to bursting with green plants, the Amazon inspiration is clear at this restaurant. You’ll also see plenty of it dashed throughout the menu, with lots of grilled meat and fish on offer, plus dishes like Brazilian ‘moqueca’ (fish stew). There’s also Japanese influence at the sushi bar. After dinner, stop by the jazz club to catch some live music.

When chef Diego Guerrero launched DSTAgE, the idea was centred around making a break from tradition to achieve a completely fresh start. That’s exactly what this haute cuisine restaurant has achieved. Housed in an industrially- inspired building and spread out over two floors, DSTAgE offers three different tastings menus, with hints of Colombia and Mexico.
