Eric Silverstein

Owner and Executive Chef, The Peached Tortilla

Eric Silverstein was born in Tokyo, Japan, where he lived for the first eleven years of his life and developed an appreciation for Japanese and Asian cuisine. At the age of eleven he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he was introduced to traditional Southern food. It is these influences that drove the menu at his first Peached Tortilla food trucks, which he started in 2010. In 2014, Eric opened his first brick and mortar concept with a wider, more sophisticated Asian and Southern influenced menu. In 2012, Restaurant Hospitality recognized Eric as one of the new “Stars of Street Food.” He is featured on the Chefsfeed Application for Austin, TX and was recently named on of the top 30 Up and Coming Chefs in America by Plate Magazine.
