In this week’s Top 5 Bites, learn what cuisine will be featured in José Andrés’ newest project and find out what new restaurant and new coffee bar open this Saturday.

Peruvian in Penn Quarter

José Andrés is adding another restaurant to his empire in Penn Quarter with China Chilcano at 418 7th Street NW (map), opening in Spring 2014. The new restaurant will serve Chifa or Chinese-Peruvian cuisine, which was the natural result of Chinese immigrants incorporating indigenous ingredients into Chinese cooking. The menu will include Peruvian dishes like ceviche as well as a Peruvian spin on fried rice and dumplings.

Buzzed on Rhode Island

As previously noted, Baltimore-based Zeke’s Coffee is coming to 2300 Rhode Island Avenue NE (map). The retail portion of the store will finally open this Saturday, according to Washington City Paper. Coffee will be roasted on site, and you’ll be able to order coffee and buy beans, as well as enjoy tastings on the weekends.

A Wall of Water

Chef Tim Ma’s new restaurant Water & Wall is set to open this Saturday at 3811 North Fairfax Drive in Arlington (map), according to Northern Virginia Magazine. Larger than the original Maple Ave., you’ll have more opportunity to sample the food that is a mix of the traditional (think braised beef cheek with sweet potato puree) and Asian influences (think saffron mussels in a coconut broth with sweet Chinese sausage).

Best of the Bs

Bourbon and beer bar Barrel is going to open in an unspecified location on Capitol Hill late this year or early in 2014, reports Washington City Paper. The new bar from the owners of Union Pub and 201 Bar will have a menu designed by Chef Garret Fleming, formerly of The Pig and chef of the forthcoming Gristle.

A Mosaic of Flavors

The newest restaurant to open in Falls Church’s Mosaic District (map) is Cyclone Anaya’s Mexican Kitchen, which starts serving today. The 40-year-old Texas-based chain serves a wide variety of Tex-Mex dishes like lobster enchiladas, crispy tacos, and chalupas. It was also announced that the third location of Ted’s Bulletin will open in the Mosaic District in late 2014.
