Picca has been on my yelp bookmark for a while. Since I really enjoyed Mo-Chica, I had to try this place out. I didn't have any reservations but I guess I was lucky, they had some seats open at the counter and the bar area. All tables were already booked so I couldn't get tables.
"At Picca, Chef Ricardo Zarate serves modern Peruvian cuisine with a Japanese flair. You’ll discover over 50 refined Peruvian dishes designed to be passed around the table.
In 2011, Chef Zarate was awarded the title of Best New Chef in America by Food & Wine Magazine. His first restaurant, Mo-Chica, serves authentic Peruvian food inside the Mercado la Paloma."
