Sotto & Picca Opening in Test Kitchen Space
As Test Kitchen, LA's experiment in musical chefs, takes its victory lap and bids farewell, the concept is already being transformed into something less temporal featuring two (semi-)permanent restaurants and a bar.
In late January, Steve Samson and Zach Pollack will open Sotto, their Italian restaurant, in the downstairs space that is now Test Kitchen. In early February, Ricardo Zarate of Mo-Chica will open Picca, his new Peruvian restaurant, upstairs at street level. Mixologist Julian Cox has something in the works for the third level, potentially named Townhouse or Townhouse on Pico. Stay tuned.
