After two years in a Chandler strip mall near the intersection of Warner and Alma School roads, Tumi Fine Peruvian Cuisine is relocating to different digs. During the short transition, the restaurant's original location is closed.
Since opening in 2012, the Peruvian restaurant owned by chef Oscar Graham has become a destination for those seeking dishes such as fresh ceviche and mariscos al aji amarillo, a colorful plate of fish, octopus, shrimp, squid, and scallops with peas and red peppers in a yellow chile sauce.
On Friday Tumi will reopen at 961 W. Ray Road in Chandler. The new location, which is slightly bigger than the last spot, is on the southeast corner of Alma School and Ray roads, just over a mile south of the restaurant's original location.
The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Graham, a first-time restaurant owner, was born and raised in Lima and has spent decades cooking Peruvian food in the United States. Before coming to the Valley in 2010, Graham cooked in California and later spent time in the kitchen at the now-defunct Contigo Peru in Mesa.
