Chef Virgilio Martinez


Chef Virgilio Martinez, motivated by an insatiable curiosity and interest in conveying the complexity of their land, he is passionate about traveling and investigating ingredients that can bring undocumented and yet even more wealth to the local cuisine. To do so, through a number of areas: ocean, lower Andes, extreme altitude and high and low jungles.  He also has an interdisciplinary team that complements each new "discovery" in a necessary context that seeks to trascend the strictly culinary and penetrate nutritional, bioligical, anthropological aspects.




Virgilio Martínez has taken Peruvian Cuisine to a whole new extreme elevation Central, which captured the top spot on Latin America's Best Restaurants and 4th. place on the World's 50 Best Restaurants!!

In Central we celebrate the biodiversity of Perú. Fresh Produce and an inexhaustible curiosity to discover and integrate new ingredients into the menu bring Peruvian cuisine to the forefront in the heart of the traditional district of Miraflores in Lima
