"The restaurant economy is changing": Lima London's new sharing plates menu

The founders of Michelin-starred Peruvian restaurant Lima London are taking it in a new direction with a more affordable sharing plates menu replacing its current à la carte offering.

"The restaurant economy is changing and we need to make sure we're constantly evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers," said co-founder Gabriel Gonzalez. "Our menu development reflects this as well as going back to our roots."

Co-founder Jose-Luis Gonzalez added: "Having been open for five years and with a solid grounding as part of the London restaurant scene, we have decided to develop our offering into a sharing, casual format rather than simply constricting diners to a starter, main and dessert format."

The new menu will launch on 16 April and has been overseen by chef and head of culinary development Robert Ortiz and co-founder Virgilio Martinez. A tasting menu and prix fixe menu will still be available.

The new menu will include a selection of bites designed to be eaten by hand, such as rocoto crisps served with either a beef, prawn or artichoke tartare (£4) and a selection of Andean crisps and crackers made from yuca, parsnip, sweet potato and olluco, accompanied by dips (£5).

The sharing dishes will showcase highlights of contemporary Peruvian cuisine: salmon tiradito ceviche with green rocoto chilli paste (£8) and tuna nikkei with soy sauce, sesame oil and cucumber (£9). The big plates menu sees new additions including beef pachamanca (£28), lamb seco (£18), potato stew (£14) and seafood chupe (£20).
