Gaston / Peruvian Cuisine Coming to NYC!


A New Restaurant Planned for Old Tabla Space

Chef Gastón Acurio


For many years, Eleven Madison Avenue was home to Tabla, a beloved Indian-fusion restaurant and special friend to the Madison Square Park Conservancy. Tabla hosted a benefit dinner for the Park each fall and will always hold a place in our hearts and in our neighborhood’s history.

We now look forward to welcoming a new restaurant and new friends. One of Peru’s most celebrated culinary figures, Gastón Acurio, will open a New York branch of his popular La Mar eateries in the glorious ground-floor space adjacent to Park. Chef Acurio founded the first La Mar, in Lima, with a mission to share Peruvian gastronomy with the world. La Mar currently operates critically acclaimed Peruvian cebicherías in South America and Mexico, as well as one in San Francisco.

Acurio and La Mar have been searching for the right space in New York for some time, and as soon as they saw the Tabla space, they knew they had found the perfect new home for their restaurant right here on the Park. We couldn’t agree with them more.

We're confident that La Mar will begin a wonderful new culinary chapter in our community and look forward to welcoming a new friend to the neighborhood.
