Tenor Placido Domingo opens restaurant featuring some Peru foodsWorld-famous opera tenor Placido Domingo inaugurated “Zengo,” his own restaurant in New York, and the menu includes several dishes inspired in the Peruvian gastronomy.

The Spanish tenor, who has recovered from cancer-treatment surgery, has opened this Latin-Asian fusion restaurant in Manhattan, with the international cook Richard Sandoval.

The menu includes Peruvian ceviche and tiradito: although they are not prepared exactly in the traditional way, they do have Peruvian ingredients such as ají panca and ají amarillo (local varieties of chili).

Zengo also offers its own version of Pisco Sour, which includes shiso syrup as its special touch (shiso is derivated from a variety of mint).

Zengo is located at 622 Third Avenue, in Manhattan.
