Obsessed-Over Los Angeles Restaurants
F&W Best New Chef 2011 Ricardo Zarate of Mo-chica got Angelenos excited about the Peruvian-Japanese food hybrid known as nikkei at his second restaurant, Picca. Now he’s opened his third and most ambitious Peruvian restaurant yet. The small-plates spot has a menu that stars paiche, a buttery Amazonian river fish that he serves raw, grilled or in a cumin-and-lime-tinged stew. paichela.com.
