Greens, Cuzco

135 Santa Catalina Angosta
Tel: 51 84 243 379's insider take:

Though just off Cuzco's Plaza de Armas, this second-story retreat feels decidedly removed from the neighborhood whirl. In a setting that's equal parts candlelight, mellow music, stone, and wood, Greens serves mostly organic interpretations of local and international crowd-pleasers, from Andean lake trout with potatoes and fava beans to Moroccan vegetables with chickpea curry and couscous. This is also one of the few places in Cuzco with many vegetarian offerings (such as quinoa-breaded tofu with seven-herb tomato sauce). Whatever your main course leanings, however, leave room for dessert. The selection is small but stellar, especially if the almond and sesame turrón with strawberries and native yacón honey is available.—Abbie Kozolchyk
