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.
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.
