El Gaucho Inca opens second restaurant in Estero

Chef Mariano Maldonado and Rocio Navarrete have expanded El Gaucho Inca’s local restaurant concept in Estero. On Tuesday night, the husband-and-wife team opened a second location of El Gaucho Inca on U.S. 41 across from Coconut Point mall. The Coconut Trace restaurant space had been vacant since Pei Wei closed there in August 2018. El Gaucho Inca has been a popular dining spot in Fort Myers for 10 years. Since launching in April 2011, the local restaurant has melded savory flavors from South America, serving Peruvian cuisine and Argentinian grilled items. The restaurant divides its menu between Argentinian and Peruvian favorites with signature dishes such as authentic Peruvian ceviche and hand-cut Argentinian steaks. For more information about the new El Gaucho Inca, 22909 Lyden Drive, call 239-494-1564 or click here.
