2013 Summum Peru Culinary Awards

Each year, Summum honors the best restaurants in Peru as well as individuals who have made significant contributions.  Their assessment is largely based on a survey conducted among connoisseurs in gastronomy, gourmands, and industry representatives. The ceremony was held last evening at the MAC Museum in Barranco, and for the second year counting, Virgilio Martinez’s Central took home the gold, earning the accolade of Peru’s Best Restaurant. Also occupying the “pantheon of Peruvian cuisine” was Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino’s Amaz, the night’s winner in the Best New Restaurant category.

Below you will find the complete list of winners by category, featuring several of Aracari’s most highly recommended restaurants:
