Peruvian cuisine is currently trending, and you can taste the very best of it at Picca Peruvian Cantina, a top-shelf restaurant in Los Angeles. Presided over by Chef Ricardo Zarate (Food and Wine's Best New Chef of 2011), this unique eatery melds fresh Peruvian cuisine with exciting Japanese influences. With world-famous ceviche (raw seafood soup), hot chilies and tomato sauces, Peruvian cuisine has recently garnered the spotlight – and Picca offers a premier selection of plates. Sample from over a dozen skewers like beef heart, savor roasted black cod over sun-dried potato stew, or try duck leg confit over black beer sauce. Try the causa, which is like Peruvian sushi, beef filet with urchin butter or crispy quinoa salad. Whether you prefer creamy potato dishes from the Andes Mountains, fresh seafood recipes from the coast or intriguing flavors of the Amazon, the Peruvian cuisine served at Picca is an adventure all its own. Picca also offers a tasty happy hour from 6-7PM that features four handcrafted cocktails, including the strong Pisco Sour and zesty Crush Groove. Sit at the bar and watch the mixologists work, or take a table and enjoy your authentic Peruvian cocktails with the restaurant's signature ceviche.
