“We are looking forward to being part of dineLA’s summer restaurant week. It’s such an incredible time to dine in Los Angeles,” said Ricardo Zarate, Executive Chef/Owner of Mo-chica, Paiche and Picca. “Chefs have world-class produce at their fingertips — or growing on-site like we do at Post & Beam — which means more room to play with seasonal ingredients. I’m excited to celebrate with our regulars and welcome new faces during dineLA Restaurant Week."
