Hi Chef Jose,

Thanks for joining us here at eGullet.

Why did you choose DC to open your first restaurant? Why do you stay in the area? I've heard rumors of your being offered opportunities elsewhere that you turned down. What attracts you to the DC area, and what would it take for you to consider expanding to another city or country?
