Named after Chef Ricardo Zarate's mother, Rosaliné is what he calls "the next phase of Peruvian dining". Taking diners back to his roots, Chef Zarate has created a menu of classic Peruvian dishes alongside 'street-food' updated with a California sensibility. Located at 8479 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, California, the space is designed to bring family, friends and strangers together in a communal environment inspired by the streets of Peru. Rosaliné is open daily from 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
Everything at Mamacita is made from scratch—from the quinoa bowls featuring farmer’s market ingredients and your choice of protein, to the Purple Corn Tea and Strawberry Horchata, to the colorful local street art that adorns the walls—Mamacita comes from Peru but could only be in LA. Named after the Mother Earth, Mamacita celebrates all that She has to offer with a spirited mix of food, music, and culture.
Meaning “eleven” in Spanish, the pop-up series Once (on-seh) was a nod to Chef Zarate’s place as the 11th child in his family, and inspired by interpretations of early food memories in his native Peru. The menu featured 11 à la carte plates (not including dessert)—all intended for sharing—and changed weekly based upon what’s available at the local farmer’s market. Dishes included versions of Peruvian staples such as Lomo Saltado, Ceviches, Tiraditos, and much more.
