No one could have known the person to step up to fill the 4,500 square-foot space would be a former employee of the previous owners. In 2000, Jorge Bracamonte, owner of downtown's Mr. Cerbiche Peruvian restaurant, was a cook at Eduardo's Station, alongside his son who worked as a dishwasher.
Now the freshly painted historic location will be home to Bracamonte's new eatery: Pisco Sour Restaurant, Bar & Grill. The new eatery takes its name from the traditional South American cocktail made of pisco, a Peruvian liquor, fresh lime juice, syrup, ice, egg white and bitters.
The doors will open to the public on September 9.
In addition to the Peruvian menu offered at Mr. Cerbiche, the eatery will also serve burgers, steaks, sandwiches, salads, wraps, chicken wings and other fare. Bracamonte also plans to serve healthy breakfasts starting at 7 a.m. and offer live music and karaoke in the evenings. The upstairs bar will be open until 2 a.m.
Prior to its many years as the The Lost Parrot, Frosty Mug and Eduardo’s, the building was a gas station and a bus station.
