According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Peruvian meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Make some modern Peruvian cuisine with today's Groupon: for $24, you can attend a ceviche-making class at Tutuma Social Club in Midtown East (a $45 value).

Tutuma University, a collection of culinary classes, is an in-house extension of Tutuma Social Club, a modern Peruvian restaurant and jazz club modeled after the lively music clubs of Lima. In Art of Ceviche Making, mealmakers will learn to craft the traditional Peruvian treat, a fresh, uncooked dish that plates raw fish marinated in various juices and spices. Guests get into the Peruvian spirit by settling in with a complimentary pisco sour, the bar’s signature drink made with Peruvian grape-distilled alcohol, lime juice, egg whites, and homemade syrup. An introduction from the chef will present ceviche’s varieties, history, and hidden past as a door-to-door salesman. The chef then makes a sample ceviche, demonstrating the creative process and allowing the class to taste it, before fishflingers make their own ceviche in groups of four. Provided with all the necessary ingredients and a chef at their disposal, participants will do their best to replicate the chef’s dish, or a dish that resembles the chef, whichever comes first. Upon completion, a seafood smorgasbord commences, serving up discussion and ceviche dishes with a well-paired wine. See calendar for available dates before making class reservations.

Tutuma Social Club

Open since 2009, Tutuma Social Club is one of the first Afro-Peruvian jazz venues in the city. Helmed by owner Santina Matwey, the club mimics those found in Lima, combining a party atmosphere with contemporary Peruvian cuisine. Peru's international chefs, Carlos Testino and Rodrigo Conroy, craft a dinner menu of ceviche and seafood dishes made with ingredients native to South America.

As diners spoil taste buds with flavors from Peru, ear-tongues can savor live music from Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet or from national touring artists, whose schedules can be found on the club's event calendar. Long tables line the white walls of the venue, ending with a small stage pronounced by an eye-popping red wall.
