It's what all chefs want, isn't it? After seventeen hours of toil, and maybe a few too many cocktails?
Douglas Rodriguez's new Nuevo-Peruvian joint, CICAMA, on 18th Street, in the former COLINA space has an awesome array of raw and marinated fish dishes--as well as a eucalyptus-burning rotisserie--and they crank until 1 AM. I've been twice, and had a lot of fun. Nothing like clean, protein-packed and intensely flavored ceviche to bring one to one's senses (or something approximating that)after cranking out three hundred meals in a smoky, submarine-like kitchen. Good music, really eclectic crowd, friendly service, and good food for a jaded palette.
