Would anyone know if there is a restaurant, chef or home cook in the area who serves cuy, or guinea pig? Thanks for any info.

    they used to serve it at El Riconcito Peruviano (I"m sure I'm spelling it wrong) on S. Ann Street, but sadly they're out of business....

      I'm really tempted to post a Jersey Shore joke, but I'll be good. :)

        I've been told that this place in Wheaton, MD will prepare cuy if prior arrangements are made:

        Cabanita Restaurant
        11305 Elkin St, Wheaton, MD 20902
        Telephone: (301) 942-8691

        I've haven't eaten there so I can't be positive of this.

          I've heard of places in Queens which have it, but nothing in Boston or DC. I haven't actually tracked down the NYC sources, yet.
