Fans of former Samba Grille’s David Guerrero will be pleased to learn that the talented young chef has landed not one, but two new gigs.
Alma opened this week at 1275 Eldridge Parkway in the ever-growing Energy Corridor. The space was home to the short-lived second Chatters, which received a “Restaurant Impossible-like, three-day makeover.
The 30-year-old South American native will focus on Peruvian food, including dishes such as Antichucho Limeno (beef heart with huacatay sauce), Scallop Tiradito (cured scallops with creamy Tiger’s milk avocado puree) and Arroz con Pato (duck confit).
The new restaurant seats 120 and includes a ceviche/Pisco bar and large patio. It is open for lunch and dinner.
Later this fall, Guerrero will open EVO in a 1920 Montrose bungalow.
As described in a press release, the restaurant, located at 1722 California, is:
Named to mark his evolution as a chef and honor the current renaissance of Latin American fare, EVO is intended to serve as an incubator and creative showcase for experiential dining in the category. Weekly small plate, plus four, six and nine-course tasting menus will be built around concepts of feeling and emotion as inspiration and be accompanied by changing sensory clues, ranging from audio and visual elements, that aim to reinforce the intended mood.
