Nuela will not re-open; Richard Sandoval’s Raymi slated for the space

In February we noted that Nuela (43 West 24th Street) would close for a few weeks while they do some renovation and change up the menu. Well Nuela and its team are not coming back to the space, and in its place will be a new a modern Peruvian restaurant called Raymi with celeb chef Richard Sandoval in charge. For this new venture, Sandoval has partnered with Chef/Owner Jaime Pesaque of Mayta Restaurante Bar in Lima, Peru.

Nuela’s arroz con pato

From the Raymi website: “[Raymi] revolves around a central Ceviche Bar, offering fresh seafood spiked with indigenous spices and ingredients. Add to that a Pisco Bar, pouring select labels alongside 30 house-infused varieties of the fiery liqueur. A selection of small and large plates showcases the Peruvian palate while encouraging guests to share and linger in the sensual Latin setting.”

This means Nuela chef Adam Schop is out of the picture, as well as their notable version of the Arroz con Pato dish (photo right) but we look forward to what look to be imaginative new Peruvian dishes at Raymi (including the Raymi Arroz con Pato)

We will post a Raymi menu as soon as we get it, but here are a few sample dishes listed in a news release:

Chicken Anticucho
panca pepper chifa dressing, confit potato, choclo, and huancaina sauce

Cebiche a la Piedra
seafood, chalaca, aji amarillo, sweet potato, and roasted panca

Arroz con Pato
duck leg confit, slow cooked breast, scallops, beer-chicha de jora rice, and cilantro

Shrimp Chupe Risotto
panca pepper sofrito, slow cooked egg, butter beans, queso fresco.
