Word is in from Facebook and the Madison Square Park Conservancy that the 11 Madison Avenue space that housed Tabla until it closed last year will be the new home of Gastón Acurio’s Peruvian restaurant, La Mar. Just off of Madison Square Park, La Mar will be an East Coast outpost of the restaurants of the same name in San Francisco, Lima, Mexico City, Santiago, Sao Paolo, and Panama City. Gastón Acurio is one of the most respected chefs to come out of South America.

It was originally slated to go in at 32 East 21st Street, but plans seem to have changed with the opening of the Tabla space.

Here is the La Mar menu from the San Francisco restaurant. It features cebiches (seafood marinated in lime juice) and causas (whipped potatos with seafood or vegetables) as well as anticuchos (grilled skewers), various fresh seafood entrees and of course empanadas.
