By Carissa Chesanek  |  April 18, 2014

With the launch of La Mar by Gaston Acurio in Brickell Key and the soon-to-rise summer heat, we got to thinking about light and fresh Peruvian food around the city. Here are eight spots to get your ceviche and pisco fix right now. 

  • El Gran Inka

    You'll find an array of different kinds of light ceviche, rich seafood offerings and meaty plates inside this small, no-frills chain in Aventura, which also serves quality (and inexpensive) pisco sours. 

    3155 NE 163rd St.; 305-940-4910

  • Ceviche 105

    Inside this minimalist Downtown eatery, you'll find some of the freshest fish dishes around, including octopus tiradito with botija olive sauce, with extra attention paid to the gorgeous presentations.

    105 NE Third Ave.; 305-577-3454

  • My Ceviche

    This fast-casual fish shack with low-key rustic ambiance offers simple but tasty quick meals, such as its signature ceviche bowl made with fish sitting on top of mixed lettuce, coconut jasmine rice and additional add-ons like mango or lime-roasted jalapeño mayo. 

    1250 S. Miami Ave.; 305-960-7825

  • La Mar by Gaston Acurio

    Brickell Key's new waterfront Peruvian hot spot includes three bars specializing in cocktails, ceviche and anticucho, and serves an eclectic mix of eats including the must-try churrasco a lo pobre made with rib-eye Angus beef, chimichurri, egg and fried banana. 

    500 Brickell Ave.; 305-913-8358

  • El Chalan Restaurant

    This hole-in-the-wall Westchester staple has been providing authentic dishes from Peru for many years and continues to satisfy the palate with items like the classic lomo saltado made with sautéed flap meat, onions, tomatoes and french fries. 

    7971 Bird Rd.; 305-266-0212

  • SuViche

    The newest outpost of the local Peruvian chain, this colorful Wynwood spot boasts the first pisco bar in the area (serving anything from pisco sours to brandy-soaked gummi bears). The Japanese-Peruvian menu makes room for the likes of crispy shrimp and mango sushi rolls alongside risotto mixed with sautéed seafood in a pepper cream sauce. 

    2751 N. Miami Ave.; 305-501-5010

  • Francesco Restaurant

    Straight from Lima, this cozy Italian-Peruvian in Coral Gables serves up dishes like fresh flounder and river-shrimp ceviche and grilled rock fish topped with fresh seafood, fino sherry and potato soufflé.

    325 Alcazar Ave.; 305-446-1600

  • Mixtura

    Expect the likes of ceviche chipotle with cilantro and acevichado maki made with tuna, shrimp and sweet potato, dishes you can learn to make yourself during one of the many cooking classes (with wine pairings) offered throughout the week.
