Peruvian super chef Gastón Acurio said back in July that he has plans to open a restaurant in D.C. Details were vague at the time, but an interview with the chef published in Fine Dining Lovers indicates the project may be La Mar Cebichería Peruana, a Peruvian restaurant he currently operates in such locations as Miami and San Francisco (there used to be one in New York). From the article:
We're looking at expansion for La Mar in London, Dubai and Washington DC but I think it's almost sure that we're doing something like La Mar in London - same atmosphere, same style, sharing plates.
The chef is also looking to open two fast-casual restaurants, and is at work on his first English cookbook.
