Before grabbing lunch at Pho 14 Sunday, we noticed the sign for Desi's Chicken & Steak is now up. There is a lot of work going on inside, but it still looks a few months away. There has been only bits of news about the restaurant but luckily the Google came through with some more information. An interview with the owners was in the Development Corporation of Columbia Heights newsletter last year:
The Camacuari's have been in business for over 16 years and own three other Peruvian eateries in Maryland and Virginia. Their success is credited to their recipe and motto "to bring back the best of Fine Peruvian Cuisine; creating innovative dishes with incomparable Peruvian flavors." Dishes like their Aguadito de Pollo (chicken soup made in the traditional Peruvian style) and their Arroz con Pollo (chicken and rice) fits the bill.
And reviewers on Yelp are liking the Falls Church location.
