London-founded Peruvian restaurant and bar concept, Lima, will open in Dubai at City Walk marking the first international venture for the brand.
The concept has been developed through a partnership between Lima London chef and head of culinary development, Robert Ortiz, and Virgilio Martinez, chief proprietor of Lima and Central Peru, which is ranked at number 4 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Chef Diego Sanchez, who previously worked under Martinez, will head up the Dubai culinary team.
Lima’s USP is bringing unknown ingredients to the fore with a menu that educates diners with new products and techniques.
Lima Dubai will occupy a premium, fully licensed location within City Walk’s Fine Dining Courtyard.
The 200-pax space will feature a restaurant, bar and outdoor terrace decorated in a colourful, rustic style with materials sourced directly from Peru.
The flagship Michelin-starred Lima Fitzrovia opened in London in 2012 and a second Lima opened in London’s Covent Garden two years later.
