Casa Playa Executive Chef Sarah Thompson Welcomes Acclaimed Chef Val Chang Cumpa of Maty’s Miami for Exclusive Pop-Up Experience

Casa Playa and Executive Chef Sarah Thompson will welcome Maty’s, the hit family-style Peruvian restaurant based in Miami, Florida for a one-night only culinary showcase on Thursday, March 14. This pop-up will feature distinct flavors and diverse ingredients foundational to both Mexican and Peruvian cuisines. The chefs will curate an exclusive à la carte menu with highlights from both restaurants, alongside specialty Pisco cocktails curated by Maty’s mixologist Daniel Cuellar. A native of Chiclayo, Peru, Chef Chang Cumpa has garnered numerous accolades after opening Miami’s Itamae. In 2023, she introduced Maty’s as a modern homage to traditional Peruvian cuisine, securing a spot on the Food and Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs 2023, The New York Times 50 Best Restaurants list, and Bon Appetit’s Top 24 Restaurants of 2023.

The pop-up à la carte menu will be available from 5 to 10 p.m. Enhancing the experience, the evening will transition into a late-night social scene complete with a DJ.
