Gastón Acurio Planning Restaurant in D.C.

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Iconic Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio has 44 restaurants worldwide, three in the U.S. and in Washington?

That's what a profile in The Washington Post says. There are no real details, but writer Nick Miroff offers this tease:

Acurio, 46, has made Peruvian cuisine into the country's proudest export. He runs a swelling global operation of 44 restaurants, including three in the United States, with plans to open a new place next year in Washington, D.C., location still undetermined.

Time will tell what Acurio has in store for Washington. But the city has seen a recent influx of South American-inspired restaurants, from Del Campo and Toro Toro to Rural Society; there's also the upcoming Peruvian-Chinese China Chilcano from José Andrés.
