At 8am on 15th June 2012, Orient-Express will open the doors to its sixth hotel in Peru, Palacio Nazarenas.  A former 16th century convent, the all suite hotel will be a contemporary reflection of Cuzco’s culture, elements of which will be reflected in its restaurant. Senzo, the new restaurant at Palacio Nazarenas, will only serve carefully prepared locally sourced Andean cuisine, a first for the city. Orient-Express has instructed and recruited the talents of bright young Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez to oversee all food and beverage at Senzo. Virgilio will ensure that the menu will retain its Andean authenticity whilst featuring his signature avant garde twist, allowing for a delightful journey of gastronomic discovery for all guests.
