And what about guac?

By Elayne Fluker | 05/04/2010 - 16:30

Buzzed about chef Bren Herrera grew up in a very Latin home—speaking mostly Spanish with her family. Born in Havana, Cuba, and raised in the suburbs of DC, Bren realized at an early age she wanted to entertain people and that she had a love and a natural talent for cooking. She started mirroring her mother in the kitchen when she was only 8, and her first job as a teen was waiting tables at a Latin restaurant in the Washington, DC area.

The whole town has a homey, communal feel to it and around every corner there is a cool art gallery or delicious restaurant to discover.
