The brothers Pucha continue to delight fans in this warm and classy bistro featuring beautifully presented French favorites with Latin influences, plus gorgeous ceviches and desserts. Order this to go: the bouillabaisse, a luscious seafood stew with generous amounts of salmon, shrimp, mussels, clams, and crab meat in a silky saffron broth (all items are separately packaged to retain textures). Or try the duck à l’orange, two fat slices of breast with addictive orange-port demi-glace and a side of buttery smooth potato puree. The ceviche trio is impeccable: Ecuadorian-style shrimp in citrus juices with plantain chips; Peruvian style-branzino in vivid leche de tigre with crispy waffle chips; and Mexican-style octopus with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and blue corn tostadas. Pro tip: The menu is online, but you’ll need to call in your order. A huge patio hosts happy, well-spaced diners.
