Peruvian restaurant Señor Ceviche is opening a second outlet on Charlotte Street in London this May at the former site of Ollie Dabbous' Barnyard restaurant.
The menu will offer national dishes such as ceviche, while also exploring the Japanese and Chinese influences on Peruvian cuisine, with a selection of Nikkei and Chifa specialities.
It will also feature favourites from the first site, which opened off Carnaby Street in Soho in 2014, including chifa chicharrones, Señor Ceviche, and pachamanca pork ribs. New dishes include barbecued scallops with aji amarillo and pisco butter; yellowfin tuna with yuzu tiger's milk, wasabi and miso; and slow-cooked short rib with aji panca and pickled garlic anticucho sauce.
Exclusive to the Charlotte Street site, a weekend brunch offering will include sweet potato waffle with crispy lamb shoulder and huacatay salsa; and Peruvian sausage with root vegetable hash, corn bread and onsen egg, while bottomless pisco punch will also be available.
A downstairs cocktail bar will showcase the Peruvian spirit pisco, with pisco sours offered alongside a new list of pisco infusions and cocktails such as pisco with lime, Thai basil, jasmine and plum sake.
The design is being overseen by Alessio Nardi of A-nrd Studio and will echo Lima's grand colonial architecture and the colourful, artistic and youthful character of the Barranco district of the city.
Founder Harry Edmeades said: "Having launched as a pop-up four years ago, and being one of the original brands to bring Peruvian food to the UK, we are delighted to be opening our second restaurant. Charlotte Street is one of London's iconic dining destinations, and we are thrilled to be bringing our exciting and diverse Peruvian offering to such a fantastic foodie hub."
