Refreshingly Calm, Cool and Collected

Everything about La Mar simply oozes cool and a freshness that will never grow stale. The light hearted breeze from Biscayne Bay, the glittering lights of the iconic skyline, and the three bright bars serving invigorating fare, finely tuned drinks and a chilled yet elegant ambience, makes this the place to while away those evening hours.

Signature Ceviches and Peruvian Platters

The signature ceviches are a must try experience, allowing the freshest catch of the day to soak up the lime and complementary flavors that linger on the tongue. Go simple with the classic fluke, laced with lime, fragrant cilantro, and a hint of sweet red onion.

As you can guess, fresh seafood makes its mark as the highlight of the perfectly honed menu but for non-fish eaters there are plenty of Peruvian plates to make your mouth water. Peruvian inspired sliders crafted with pork adobo and pepián de choclo offer meltingly delectable goodness, the Colorado grilled lamb chops with anticuchera sauce is heartbreakingly tender and the wagyu beef is certainly worth writing home about.

Local Love and a Slice of the Exotic

Dessert takes on a local look with the Key Lime Pie jazzed up with chicha morada, sorbet, and Italian meringue. Those looking for a slice of the exotic can tempt their taste buds with Lima inspired sweet potato and pumpkin fritters doused in a spicy wild honey sauce.

Sip on Something Special

Sipping something special beside the waters is best done in the plush outdoor seating area of La Mar. Perfect piscos and classical long drinks with a Peruvian twist make for a decadent drinking experience. The Chifa Negroni tastes as delicate as a butterfly flitting its wings with its juniper infused mosto verde and the guava sour manages to bring together egg whites, lime, triple sec and passion fruit in a fabulous finish.

The fusion of Peruvian flavors, the freshest ceviches and the slight Asian twist delivers an ancient art to the waterfront of Miami with a contemporary kick that can only be brought to the table by a celebrity chef like Gaston Acurio. For a hint of magic with a heady mixture of flair and an unrivalled setting, it’s time to embrace the beauty of La Mar.
