The Peruvian Brothers, Giuseppe and Mario Lanzone, serve authentic “Comida Criolla”, the tastiest part of their Peruvian heritage rooted in Andean, Spanish, African and Asian influences.
The flavors that dominated their childhood in Lima are the tastes they craved most after moving to the United States. Sandwiches like Pan con Chicharrón, an addictive combination of salted pork loin and sweet potato pair nicely with fresh sides and salads packed with Superfoods from Peru.
Recipes passed down in the Lanzone family as well as Chef Mario’s own original spins on traditional Peruvian favorites give the menu an authentic taste with a unique, healthy twist.
As a two-time Olympic rower for Team USA, Giuseppe Lanzone is the driving force on the business side to match his brother, Mario’s prowess in the kitchen.
The brothers were born and raised off the coast of Lima, Perú, in a close-knit community of “La Punta” where family and the ocean reigned.
The only time they didn’t spend in the ocean was spent feasting on fresh fruits, vegetables and meats prepared by loving hands.
When developing Peruvian Brothers, Giuseppe and Mario wanted to give Washington D.C. not only delicious Peruvian ingredients and flavors, but also a piece of their unique heritage
