Rocoto, aji amarillo, huacatay, and leche de tigre are just a few of the Peruvian flavors that fill the menus of Chef Ricardo Zarate's three Los Angeles restaurants. The newest, Paiche, just opened in Marina Del Rey, and aims to explore the kinship between Peruvian and Japanese cuisine in an izakaya style setting. Head bartender Deysi Alvarez of Mo-Chica now also helms the Paiche bar. Her goal with Paiche was to harness the energy of the coastal location, playing with drinks from both the bright and fruity side and seriously boozy side of the cocktail spectrum.
