RUKA Restobar is a contemporary Peruvian restaurant with major Japanese fusion vibes that is brought to life in the Godfrey Hotel in Downtown Crossing by the same creative minds as Yvonne’s, Mariel, Coquette and Lolita.

The menu features heavy influences of Japanese ‘nikkei’ and Chinese ‘chifa’ cuisine, which are a big part of modern Peruvian culture, so expect some fresh South American flavors married with Japanese techniques, including a first-class sushi program, hot dishes from the wok, chilled noodles, ceviche and tartares, and hot plates with five spice, sesame and aji chili flavors. You’ll definitely want to explore the drinks menu, which was developed by Beverage Director, Will Thompson who also designed Yvonne’s critically-acclaimed beverage list. Choose from a succinct list of rotating craft cocktails, a draft of a Peruvian or Japanese import, or from an approachable yet curated list of wines from around the globe with a bit of a South American focus.

The expansive dining room is bathed in golden, ambient light with acacia wood tabletops, a large wrap-around bar, Asian-style dragons clinging to decorative columns, Japanese street scenes and murals, and colorful Peruvian-style wool ropes adorning the ceilings. It’s the perfect spot for a little wow factor before or after the theater, sharing some small plates with a group after work, or filling up on bites and cocktails before hitting the nightclub scene.
