Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant with a cool/trendy vibe (good date spot). The ground floor has more of a bar scene, whereas upstairs is a little quieter and more restaurant-y.

The only other time I had Japanese-Peruvian fusion was Nobu (which I get is not a fair comparison) but that said, I'd opt for a normal Japanese restaurant over this.
