Near the edge of the Everglades, husband-and-wife team Vanessa Rivera and Gian Carlo Accinelli forwent a white wedding and instead opened a quaint space with romantic quotes scribbled in chalk on every wall. The pair had planned a more traditional Peruvian restaurant, but that all changed after they spent more than two months eating through Lima's markets and sandwich shops. Peru's Asian influences emerge in sandwiches like the pollo chi jau kay, made with fried chicken thighs doused in a combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and Chinese five-spice powder. Accinelli also dishes out a fine take on the classics. His butifarra begins by giving a boned-out pork leg a two-day brine in garlic, red onion, and Peruvian oregano. It marinates for another day in a similar blend amped up with cumin and achiote before a four-hour boil in chicken stock. It’s chilled and sliced but still maintains all of that fatty richness, brightened by a tangy tousle of the ever-present salsa criolla.
