Dining Guide

Maison Pucha

A trio of Ecuadorian brothers run the show in this charming space, elegant yet casual with white-washed planked walls and comfy banquettes. We fairly swooned over the colorful ceviche trio: octopus with choclo in spicy yellow leche de tigre, shrimp with red Espelette peppers in zesty lime juice, and snapper with avocado and jalapeños in tangy ponzu sauce. The French side of the kitchen shines in exquisite coq au vin with a sumptuous red wine jus and luxurious bouillabaisse with impeccably fresh mussels, clams, scallops, and salmon in a fragrant saffron broth. But the real star of our meal was the mignardises, miniature pastries including bite-size macarons, cannoli, and bonbons with mini portions of decadent chocolate mousse and crème brûlée.
