Celeb restaurateur around town Jose Garces is opening a gourmet Peruvian restaurant in the old 707 space. Over at The Clog, A.D. Amorosi reports:
It’s gonna feature a ceviche bar with displays. “I plan to spend a good amount of time at the ceviche bar, creating unusual and fresh combinations with ingredients from China and South America,” says the chef/restaurateur. The spot will open in 2009.
As for the name, chifas are what Peru’s Chinese restaurants are called. They’re the places that offer lomo saltado, arroz chaufa and all those good dishes.
