José Andrés to Open China Chilcano in Penn QuarterBy Rina Rapuano
October 28, 2013
José Andrés is at it again in Penn Quarter, announcing late this afternoon that he intends to open a restaurant tentatively called China Chilcano in the former Olsson’s Bookstore space at 418 Seventh St. NW. The Washington Post reports that the Chinese-Peruvian fusion concept will likely open in spring 2014, featuring Peruvian dishes that employ Chinese technique. Andrés, the man behind local institutions like Jaleo, Zaytinya, Minibar and Oyamel - all in close proximity to this new space - has dabbled with mixing Latin and Asian flavors with his Mexican-Chinese mash-up, China Poblano in Las Vegas.
