August 12. That's the date that Gaston Acurio (Astrid & Gastón, number 14 on San Pellegrino's World's 50 Best Restaurants list) and Veronica and Vincent Beckman will open the doors at Tanta, unleashing his world-renowned Peruvian cuisine (32 restaurants worldwide) on Chicago. Esyn Designs put the finishing touches on the look, featuring an overall modernist feel accented with bright pop artwork and South American hardwood.

Other features include full-frontal retractable windows, a second-floor private dining space looking into an "open show" kitchen, and a rooftop garden and bar that's expected to open next summer. The rest of the restaurant opens Monday.
