Dining Guide

Maison Pucha

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.
