Acclaimed Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio will be opening his first Chicago restaurant Tanta on August 12. Eater Chicago takes a look inside the restaurant, which features South American woods, bright artwork, and "full-frontal retractable windows." The space, which was designed with the help of Esyn Designs, will also feature a private, second-floor dining room and a rooftop garden and bar that is slated to open next summer.
Acurio has 32 restaurants worldwide, including multiple locations of Tanta. Acurio is also the chef of Astrid y Gastón in Lima, which is currently ranked at #14 on the World's 50 Best list and is the highest-ranked restaurant in Latin America.
