West Los Angeles restaurant Pikoh is now fully down for the count, just weeks after drastically flipping its menu and perspective in an attempt to rebrand. Star chef Ricardo Zarate, who came onboard to open the place in January, had already stepped away from the restaurant.
Eater confirmed both that Zarate is no longer involved, and that Pikoh in its current state is no more. A person attached to the restaurant says that existing ownership has plans to completely overhaul the space and menu, and will hope to reopen (possibly under a different name) at an undisclosed later date. But for now, despite the lack of acknowledgement by the restaurant on its website or social channels, Pikoh is fully locked up. The final day of service was Saturday night.
Meanwhile, Zarate is still cooking up a storm over at Rosaline, as well as his Las Vegas restaurant Once. Got more info on what’s next for the Pikoh space? Hit the tipline, anonymity guaranteed.
Pikoh. 11940 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles.
