WEST SIDE— LAW catches up with Mo-Chica mastermind Ricardo Zarate for an informative q&a. He divulges that plans for his second restaurant, Moche, are on hold (apparently he didn't get those investors?), though whenever it does go it will be like Nobu Peruvian. He thinks it's going to happen, but in the meantime, Ricardo is considering a third venture involving anticucho or skewers. Think robata but Peruvian, all skewers under $5, westside, booze, open kitchen, the works. In other news, Ricardo, who was once executive chef at Wabi-Sabi on Abbot Kinney, left the sushi spot last month. [LAW]
