Taking cues from classic Peruvian bars, Brooklyn's Llama Inn is an unfussy showcase for talented Peruvian-American chef Erik Ramirez - who has trained in New York’s top restaurants including noted Manhattan restaurant Eleven Madison Park. Known for pushing the boundaries of his heritage cuisine, adding influences from Japan and China - expect elevated Peruvian food “in the spirit of the Brooklyn original.” In London, the kitchen is led by Marcin Maliczowski, previously of the famed Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio’s Barcelona restaurant Yakumanaka.
His menu features snacks such as cabbage, chanacaca, saikyo miso, and quinoa furikake; squid with yuca, rocoto, chocolo, and cancha; and arroz con mariscos alongside tortillas, huacaina, and chalaca. The restaurant has its own entrance on Willow Street and housed in a glass-topped and sided dining room on the Shoreditch hotel’s roof on the 7th floor. Expect plenty of foliage and sofa seating, promising expansive skyline views.
Peruvian flavors with a Brooklyn flair.
