Cevicheria in San Francisco

daantaat Apr 26, 2009 07:25 PM

Can anyone name the restaurant that was opened by the top chef in Columbia, who was featured in a No Reservations episode? His place in SF was mentioned in a 2008 issue of Bon Appetit magazine and I cannot find the article. The No Reservations website lists Jorge Escandon as the owner/chef of La Cevicheria in Columbia.

    Are you sure? The newest Cevicheria is from a star in Lima.

      La Mar Cebicheria Peruana. You're confusing Jorge Escandon with Gastón Acurio.

        If you are talking about the country in S. America it is spelled Colombia, a country not known for its ceviche. Speaking of, I had some of the best arepas ever at a booth at the Glen Park Festival yesterday. Anybody know the name of the vendor?

            As you probably noted if you check the website, they have a lunch counter at the Oxbow Public Market in Napa. I swear I read somewhere that they had some additions to the menu but don't see it either on the Oxbow or Pica Pica website. Maybe i saw something about that when I was at Oxbow just before Easter.
