Casual Gourmet Restaurants

in Mexico City

 

 

 

The latest trend in restaurants in Latin America, other than the rapid proliferation of burger joints, is a new genre we call Casual Gourmet. These are restaurants that either take traditional street foods or regional comfort foods and elevate them to gourmet status, served in a more casual ambiance and typically at prices that are less than you’d pay for a similar meal at an upscale dining establishment. We’ve listed the ten restaurants that fall within this category, ranked by our overall rating, in this list of the 8 best Gourmet Casual restaurants in Lima.
