Robert Ortiz to Open Chakana Restaurant in Birmingham this Summer

Robert Ortiz

Robert Ortiz, who has been Head Chef at Lima in London, plans to open Chakana inside a former branch of Lloyds Bank.

Ortiz had previously worked at the Costa Verde restaurant in Peru’s capital city, before taking positions at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone and the Four Seasons Canary Wharf.

2G Design & Build, who will design the site in Moseley, said it would have a “relaxed, accessible feel whilst showcasing the delights of Peruvian food”.

When Mr Ortiz opens his restaurant he will certainly be in good company. There are more Michelin starred restaurants in Birmingham than any city outside of London.

The name Chakana is taken from an ancient Peruvian symbol that represents individuals living in harmony with each other and their surroundings.

The Peruvian restaurant will also specialise in Pisco, alongside an offering of wines and beers.
