A newcomer takes the gold for Best Latin American this year.
There’s a new kid in town that’s taking the Latin American scene by storm. Suyo Modern Peruvian may be less than a year old, but it’s already snagged the gold in this category (and our coveted Best New award). Chef Ricardo Valverde’s Peruvian roots shine through in the complex flavours of the scallop tiradito, catch of the day with Peruvian spices, and AAA tenderloin lomo saltado—flavour feats that had one judge declaring Suyo to be “one of my most unique dining experiences in a long time.”
