One of the top 30 restaurants to do business in Latin America
Why choose it: This renowned Lima restaurant was the pioneer of the gastronomic movement that has put Peru in the world’s spotlight. It opened its doors in July 1994, with the kitchen led by Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio and German chef and pastry chef Astrid Gutsche. Initially, it was located in premises on Cantuarias Street in the district of Miraflores, but since 2014 Astrid & Gaston found a space for it in the Casa-Hacienda Moreyra, a country residence declared a historical monument that belonged to the old San Isidro estate and stands out for its ancient architecture. Acurio trained as a chef in Europe and returned to Peru to experiment and reposition the local cuisine, thus becoming one of the greatest exponents of Peruvian cuisine in the 21st century. Astrid & Gaston occupies a key place in Lima’s gastronomic scene.
Business tips: Although it is a place visited by tourists looking for culinary experiences, the Moreyra house where Astrid & Gaston is located is characterized by its ample spaces and rooms that provide privacy to its diners. Executives from abroad seek to visit this restaurant to enjoy a gourmet experience with the characteristic touch of Peruvian ingredients and recipes in a very elegant space, which reflects the old Lima, and are also attracted by a space that maintains the essence of Peruvian food in its dishes. Astrid & Gaston has become one of the key destinations to visit for any executive who wants to learn more about local cuisine.
