SoBeWFF's Pescado & Pisco: Gastón Acurio Coming to Miami

At least once a year there is a new national cuisine that makes it ways into the larger global culinary scene. Some kind of drift in and quickly fizzle out. Others tend to make a larger impact on food culture for the long term. Peruvian cuisine had been kind of a big deal for a while now and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Much of that has to do with the work of the guy pictured above: Gastón Acurio, the official Ambassador of Peruvian food.

Pervuian foodies would've have had a freak out at Pescado & Pisco on the Rooftop at the Betsy: the Almighty of Peruvian cuisine was drinking Pisco Sours, chopping away at fresh fish in the flesh, and alluding to his newest venture: which just happens to be located in Miami.
