“Culinary traditions from all different eras and every corner of Peru are reunited in our kitchen with a new perspective.” Creative, bold, playful: thus is the culinary style of Astrid & Gastón, which opened its first location in 1994 on Calle Cantuarias. Every dish is served with a little piece of Peru, the country with which the restaurant’s owners and namesakes, Astrid and Gastón, have long been utterly enamored.
At Central, powerful inspiration is found in a curiosity for all things Peruvian. Thanks to the Mater Iniciativa research center, the team at Central has developed a culinary approach that seeks to learn about and draw attention to our country, with its unique ingredients, culture, and tradition. Every dish is a story, a journey, an invitation to wander through Peru and discover it. Each and every day, Central -one of the best restaurants in the world- shows exactly why it deserves its imposing reputation. Today Central ranks second on the exclusive list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants
