China Chilcano By The Numbers

José Andrés’ latest restaurant, China Chilcano, is now open in Penn Quarter. Here’s what you need to know, by the numbers.

China Chilcano By The Numbers

25: The number of piscos they’ve curated at the bar. Drink the grape-based spirit straight or in one of Jasmine Chae’s well-crafted pisco sours.

268: The number of funky light bulbs adorning the restaurant designed by Spanish architect/designer Juli Capella.

300: The number of gallons of saltwater in the restaurant's fish tank that is currently home to lobsters on The Green Mile waiting to be consumed.

3: The number of types of cuisine incorporated into the vibrant menu—Peruvian Criollo, Japanese Nikkei and Chinese Chifa. This is a reflection of the significant influence Chinese and Japanese immigrants have had on Peruvian culture.

 20: The number of veggies incorporated into the “Aeropuerto” rice dish. That’s a heck of a lot more than V-8.

4: The number of Lazy Susan-style tables making it easier for large parties to share food.
