The award, presented by Eater Awards and Patrón Tequila, is chosen through a public and mediated process.

Local editors in LA, NYC, Portland, Chicago, Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, New Orleans, Miami and Houston nominate candidates under five categories: Restaurant of the Year, So Hot Right Now restaurant, Chef of the Year, Bartender of the Year and Best Bathroom.

Eater readers vote on those nominees to narrow the field down to three in each category, where the Editorial team then selects a winner.

Castre has been living in the U.S. for ten years, and opened his own restaurant, Latin Bites Café in Houston, Texas, according to El Comercio. The restaurant serves traditional Peruvian cuisine and Latin fusion.

A month after opening the restaurant won Restaurant of the Month in Houston, and a few months later it was voted as one of the five best new restaurants.
