Introducing LIMA Presents
LIMA Presents is our latest venture and was born out of a desire to host regular, fantastic, energetic and interesting events at our restaurants in Covent Garden and Fitzrovia.
We will be hosting special events throughout the year dedicated to the most exquisite dining and evenings of entertainment in London.
LIMA Presents… “Elevation - A celebration of Peru’s bio-diverse natural larder”
Following the success of our first LIMA Presents event this month, with our leading chef Virgilio and his good friend Erik from LLama Inn in Brooklyn, we are extremely excited to announce our second LIMA Presents event at LIMA Floral.
On the 01st June, our very own Virgilio Martinez, and internationally renowned bartender Simone Caporale, are teaming up for a one-off event; serving a seven-course pairing menu at LIMA Floral, Covent Garden.
Chef proprietor of LIMA London, ranked no.5 in the world’s 50 best restaurants, Virgilio Martinez, is serving up seven dishes which celebrate the biodiversity of Peru and its natural larder. These dishes highlight the extensive ingredients that Peru has on offer, still being discovered and tested by Virgilio’s Mater Iniciativa.
Mater Iniciativa, under the direction of Virgilio Martinez, are a team of researchers who travels across Peru collecting ingredients - from the banks of a river in the Amazon jungle to the middle of the frozen Puna grasslands. The biological and cultural research has helped to understand that a plate of food will never be more important than the tradition of an ingredient.
To enhance the flavour experience, Italian-born and award-winning bartender/cocktail extraordinaire, , will be layering in a pairing drinks menu, which compliments each recipe, but also encapsulates his distinctive personal style. Winner of the International Bartender of the Year award in 2014, Simone has tasted every Peruvian ingredient within the LIMA Floral kitchen, and has created a bespoke cocktail menu to compliment every dish for each course.
This will be a night to remember of Peruvian drinking and dining expertise, so to ensure you don’t miss out,
