Just opened: Picca, a Westside Peruvian restaurant from the folks behind Mo-Chica. Despite a few glitches, it's a very fun and utterly delicious place, says foodiemahoodie. "Picca might be the quintessential L.A. restaurant—informal, delicious, creative and a touch of 'ethnic'."
"It reminded me of the first omakase I had at Matsuhisa a few decades back when it was so original and fresh. A whole new kind of food. Picca made me feel the same way. Matsuhisa, well, they're a little stuck and relatively dry, but this place has all the juice. It's less formal than Matsuhisa, and feels like a culinary party," says foodiemahoodie.
The best things so far: sea bass, unagi, and ceviche. Santa Barbara shrimp is lovely but, as expected, expensive. Portions are generous.
