You’ll Sing Do-Raymi for Raymi

1x1.trans Youll Sing Do Raymi for RaymiI’m sure you can tell by the title that I’m feeling saucy. Could be because I finally made it out to Raymi, Richard Sandoval’s Peruvian restaurant. It was damn good.

I went during restaurant week, but this was completely by mistake. I’m usually not a fan of RW (or George RR Martin’s RW), but I figured the Incan gods must have willed things to be, so I ordered from the RW menu.

I started off my meal with the Ceviche Mixto. It was composed of aji rocoto, shrimp, octopus, and squid. Let’ me tell you, this was a gorgeous dish. The octopus playfully laid on the plate while the color of the onions brightened up the dish. Each piece of seafood was perfectly “cooked”. This was a perfect dish, light, powerful, but elegant.

I chose the cod Cau Cau for my second dish. The cod was seared on the outside, which meant a gorgeous crunchy skin. There were also clams, mussels, peas, carrots and mint (which brought freshness to the dish).

I got dessert as well, the Peruvian doughnuts with drizzled honey. They were so good, I did not even bother to take a picture.


Raymi is located at 43 West 24th Street in the Flatiron District of New York (212) 929-1200
