After suffering through the usual bureaucratic delays, restaurateur Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld is finally ready to start serving a full menu today at his new Ceviche in Glover Park. The original Ceviche, opened in 2005 in Silver Spring, is the first of Fraga-Rosenfeld’s restaurant/lounges to spawn a second location.
The menu and interior of the Glover Park location will mirror, more or less, the menu and interior of the original. Javier Angeles-Beron will oversee the kitchens at both restaurants, turning out a Peruvian-heavy cuisine that he calls Novo-Andino. Angeles-Beron has hired Jose “Pepe” Luis, former chef at the Peruvian embassy, to serve as chef de cuisine at the Glover Park location.
The main difference between the two operations—-well, aside from the obvious problem of trying to find a parking spot in Glover Park—-is the brunch menu at the new location. Angeles-Beron plans to introduce a desayuno Latino in Glover Park, and its menu looks push Americans beyond the standard brunch dishes. Among the items: French toast made with pisco-soaked Challah and lomito saltado over toast.
