Peru's Loss, Our Gain: In the Kitchen at Mango

1 of 20


The downtown location of Mango Peruvian Cuisine is only 11 weeks old. Jorge Calvo, with his wife Nori and two of their daughters, own and operate both this new location as well as the five-year old restaurant of the same name in Shrewsbury.

Mango owner and Peruvian native Jorge Calvo came to St. Louis 20 years ago. In Chiclayo, Peru he owned four restaurants, but traded them in for life in St. Louis and two restaurants here. Peru's loss, our gain. Read Ian Froeb's review of Mango here: "Two for Peru." Photos by Jennifer Silverberg.
