We have already lavished all the praise we could for the restaurant of the former Murano hotel, renamed 1K, with its dining room decor inspired by traditional Andes architecture. The Peruvian cuisine revisited by Julien Burbaud had also won us over, and so we were confident about returning to sample his new menu, now more open to flavors from the rest of the world (with a strong Asian bent) in a highly successful fusion style, as evinced by the delicious farm-raised pork and black tiger shrimp wontons, an Andean version of the Cantonese dumplings (€14), or the tasty lemon balm gyozas (€15) that pay tribute to the Korean dumplings. The main dishes were equally flavorful, like the original beef picanha, crispy “papas” and saltado juices (€32) or the remarkable cod, king crab and shellfish “parihuela” (€26), a dish like a cross between parillada and zarzuela. A few lovely desserts all at €12, like the fabulous 1K millefeuille with dulce de leche, lychee and grapefruit. The wine list proposes a mix of French and South American wines, some of which are also served by the glass (from €7 to €10). The restaurant offers an impeccable lunch special at €25 or a prix-fixe menu at €29. Charming, attentive service.
