Peruvian culinary ambassador Gastón Acurio's Miami outpost at the chic Mandarin Oriental on Brickell Key merges the humble cevicherías of Lima with the elegance of fine dining and the bold flavors of Nikkei cuisine. Helmed by Acurio protégé Diego Oka, who has honed his career at restaurants around the globe, the menu elevates Peruvian classics such as causas and the grilled, skewered meats called anticuchos to new heights of refinement that make even the most squeamish first-timers swoon. Insider tip: La Mar's dining room is buzzing and vibrant, but the best tables are on the waterfront patio. It's open all day, so you can feast under the sun, moon, and stars.
