Ceviche Nights: Ricardo Zarate + Josiah Citrin Uni Night
For the Ceviche Nights” dinner series, chef Ricardo Zarate, business partner Stephane Bombet and Food GPS invite some of L.A.’s best chefs into the kitchen at Zarate’s downtown restaurant Mo-chica. “Ceviche Nights” previews Paichẽ, a seafood-focused cevicheria debuting in Marina del Rey in 2013, while pushing the boundaries of ceviche. On December 9, we welcomed Mélisse chef-owner Josiah Citrin to help create a five-course menu, with every course featuring sea urchin, even dessert. Inventive bartender Matt Biancaniello served three exclusive cocktails for Uni Night, Mo-chica bar manager Deysi Alvarez crafted three cocktails of her own, and New Belgium Brewing contributed complementary tasting flights. Better yet, 10% of proceeds benefited American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Ceviche Nights continues on Sunday, December 16 with Ricardo Zarate, guest chefs Bryant Ng (The Spice Table), Kris Yenbamroong (NIGHT + MARKET) and Hourie Sahakian (Short Cake), seven courses, and tasting flights from Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
