Eric Silverstein

The Peached Tortilla was founded by Eric Silverstein, a former litigator who decided to pursue a different career path and marry his passions of food and business. Eric was born in Tokyo, Japan, where he was heavily influenced by Japanese, Chinese and Malaysian cuisine. At the age of ten, Eric moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he was introduced to traditional Southern cuisine. These divergent flavors and cuisines serve as the backdrop for The Peached Tortilla’s menu. In 2012, Restaurant Hospitality recognized Eric as one of the new “Stars of Street Food.” He is also featured on the Chefsfeed Application for Austin, TX.
