Update: While Zarate is indeed looking at the space and others in consideration of a bigger Mo-Chica location, his camp tells Grub Street that absolutely nothing has been signed yet. While awaiting news on what Ricardo Zarate's follow-up restaurant to Mo-Chica will actually be--including such possibilities as Moche, Picca, or Anticucho, one of which might replace Test Kitchen next year--L.A. Downtown News announces that the chef's Peruvian original will move out of Mercado Paloma and on to Seventh Street where it will take over for Sandella’s Flatbread CafĂ©. Seeing as Mo-Chica drew a crowd in its South Central, Central American mini-mall, surely it will make a bigger splash on the heavily trodden track that features Bottega Louie and SugarFish, even if it drops a touch of its diamond-in-the-rough charm. Mo-Chica is currently slated for a March reopening at 514 W. Seventh St. Downtown.
