Yesterday, Todd English told Guest of a Guest that he thought Peruvian food might be the next big thing, and one person who would seem to agree is Bon Appétit’s food editor, Andrew Knowlton, who has just relaunched the site’s food blog with the name BA Foodist. Knowlton points out that the cuisine could use a prominent ambassador, asking, “Could Peruvian celebrity chef Gaston Acurio be the savior? Judging by the way the media (Eater SF, SF Chronicle, 7x7), are covering the opening of his first Stateside restaurant, La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, in San Francisco, it looks that way.” But what good does that do New York? Knowlton lists his favorite Peruvian restaurants, but none of them are in our fair city. Todd English, it’s on you.
