For the second consecutive year, the Astrid & Gastón restaurant in Lima of chef and entrepreneur Acurio, was chosen as one of the best restaurants in the world by the distinguished Saint Pellegrino list. This list is made by 800 critics, among journalists and international specialists in gastronomy. This year the restaurant climbed up and occupies the 35th place. The first place in the ranking is for Noma, a Danish restaurant of Chef René Redzepi, followed by the Spanish restaurants El Celler of Can Roca and Mugaritz, respectively. Lima is the gateway of Peru and worth dallying a day or two before heading to the heights of Machu Picchu.
