Chicama, the eagerly expected modern Peruvian seafood restaurant on King’s Road is on soft launch until Sunday, 31 July 2016. It is open for dinner only with 50% off food. The 72-cover restaurant will then fully open from Monday, 1 August.
Chicama is the second opening from the team behind Marylebone’s much-loved Pachamama restaurant. It is open for Monday dinner and Tuesday through to Sunday for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.
Head Chef Erren Nathaniel has previously worked in some of the most exciting kitchens in Lima and London, including Launceston Place, Viajante, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught and 28:50.
The menu, inspired by the coastal food of Peru, revolves around fish of the day. Market fresh fish such as dover sole, rock bass and monkfish will be cooked on the robata grill and served with house sauces, such as fermented sweet potato chilli and lobster oil chimichurri.
With no meat on the menu, seafood and vegetables are championed and vibrant flavours making bold use of chilli and lime feature throughout. Dishes include Tuna tiradito, smoked tamari egg, black radish and Crispy confit seabass rolls while inventive vegetable dishes using the best British seasonal produce, such as BBQ baby beets, choclo, Japanese pear salad, are another highlight.
