Nothing says “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day quite like a really amazing meal that you don’t have to cook yourself! Luckily, Raymi Peruvian Kitchen and Chef Erik Ramirez are providing couples the necessary ingredients to spice up their romance with a Peruvian influenced Valentine’s Day.

I can’t be the only fan who was disappointed see Chef and Restaurateur Richard Sandoval get eliminated so early in the competition on the most recent season of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters. Hopefully there will be a next time for this talented and enterprising chef to compete on the show, because Sandoval’s Zengo and Raymi are two of my favorite restaurants in New York City!
Right now, Zengo is taking its ever-revolving blend of Latin-Asian cuisines on an adventure with Peru and Malaysia. I was recently invited to a press dinner where we sampled select new items on the Test Kitchen Menu. Here’s a preview of what’s new at Zengo!
This past Sunday we made our first visit to Raymi, another one of Richard Sandoval’s gorgeous and amazing restaurants, to dine on an authentic Peruvian feast that is now a regular part of their menu. Available every Sunday and priced very reasonably at just $38 per guest, Sunday Supper, as it’s called, is served family style for easy sharing and offers your party the choice of two appetizers, two main dishes (with appropriate sides) and a choice of one of two desserts (the price of cocktails and soft drinks is not included). Here’s a look at the tempting menu:
Appetizers: Choice of 2
Peruvian Caesar Salad with Huacatay (a Peruvian herb similar to mint), Almonds, sliced Green Grapes and Croutons with a fresh lime dressing
