Peruvian restaurant GK Bistronomie is a play on the words "bistro" and "gastronomy." Chef/partner Rafael Perez previously owned four restaurants in Ecuador, one of which, Zazu, in Quito, earned a place among the top 300 restaurants in the world by Relais & Châteaux. Perez describes GKB's menu as globally influenced Peruvian cuisine. One highlight is the anticuchos ($14). Generous pieces of perfectly cooked Black Angus skirt steak are placed on a bed of creamy huancaína sauce — a Peruvian blend of cheese, ají amarillo pepper, saltines, milk, and garlic. The deliciously spicy huancaína comes spooned over boiled potatoes and flecked with a chimichurri sauce and cilantro. It's a comforting yet dynamic dish that delivers with each bite. The anticuchos are an example of Perez's less nuanced and more familiar dishes and suggest the chef does best when he shows some restraint and concentrates on quality ingredients.
