Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he reviews Paiche, the new Marina del Rey outpost of Chef Ricardo Zarate’s growing brand of Peruvian cuisine. The restaurant is named after the Amazonian fish that is featured prominently on the menu. He recommends the kampachi tiradito, paiche tiradito, wagyu tiradito, pacu ribs, saltado de camarones and chaufa de langosta. He also enjoys the cocktails, especially the Pisco Sour.
