Spotted: Lima Resto-Lounge

A new restaurant/lounge hybrid is opening next door to DC Coast on K Street called Lima. I haven't been able to track down any details, though I did find this Web site, which indicates the restaurant will be "blooming" this fall.

Metrocurean speculation: Bon Appetit recently declared Peruvian food the next hot cuisine. "With its vibrant ceviches, crispy, spiced rotisserie chickens, and packed-with-flavor empanadas, this is one cuisine we could eat every day," the editors said. Making (total) assumptions from the name, it sounds like Lima could be D.C.'s first trendy Peruvian joint. Anyone heard anything about this new spot?

Lima will not be a Peruvian Restaurant. It's named after Lime=Lima in Spanish. It will be a Modern South American Restaurant Bar and Lounge and it's scheduled to open in December.
