Cesar “Augusto” Izquierdo 5.22.57 - 2.11.12

Cesar “Augusto” Izquierdo 5.22.57 - 2.11.12 Though most people associate Rogers Park's famous Peruvian restaurant Taste of Peru with his more gregarious older brother Cesar, those of us who frequented the restaurant have always been charmed by Cesar's mellow younger brother, Augusto.
