Mo Chica

Mo Chica is run by Ricardo Zarate (also of Picca) and recently relocated downtown right around the corner from Bottega Louie The new space is a perfect backdrop for their dishes- it's bright with a festive ambiance. I wanted to try practically every dish on the menu and luckily we went with friends so we were able to do some damage. Kicking off the night with a round of cocktails and then before we knew it, there was an abundance of Peruvian dishes that had taken over our table. Highlights include an alpaca stew and albacore ceviche.
