There are openings and THERE ARE OPENINGS! 

Multi-award-winning Chef Juan Chipoco rocked downtown Miami recently with a knock-out, invitation only, all-out party at CVI.CHE105, (105 N.E. 3rd Ave., Miami 33132).  

Chef Chipoco, originally from Lima, Peru, greeted his loyal clients and new friends while he encouraged his dedicated staff to make the evening unforgettable for everyone.  There was a roaming musical band, beautiful models posing for photos and a busy staff offering Peruvian sushi specialties, appetizers, wines, beers as well as festive Pisco drinks.

“Coming to Miami is a dream come true for me” said Chef Chipoco, “I opened the downtown CVI.CHE 105 when the neighborhood was just starting to rebuild. The area was not a very desirable place a few years back however all of that has changed.  New buildings are rising, more and more restaurants are opening, and the area is now a destination place for tourism as well as locals.  When I negotiated with the owner of the building, I promised him that I would completely clean and modernize the place. It took many months of very hard work.  I called in four artists (one from France), to each decorate a section of the restaurant. It’s been an uphill endeavor, but I’m so satisfied with the amazing results. 

Besides the visual impact, when you come to eat here, you will experience something modern and personal in my food preparations.   I am passionate about Incan tradition, Japanese flavors and I want to also create new, exciting dishes.  I offer a large variety of excellent combinations that are ultra-fresh, moist and packed with an abundance of very tasty protein.  We prepare a mixture of lime, cilantro and lemon-based sauces which gives food a ‘kick’.  Also expect full, top shelf drinks which are adorned with bamboo straws that are environmentally safe.  My staff is highly trained and ready to make your dining experience enjoyable.”                                           CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Writer’s note: As we departed, we promised to return soon.  We did, and our selections were as expected, mouthwatering and totally scrumptious.  Now we have a new favorite downtown eatery that does not disappoint.
