Taking over Los Balcones in Hollywood, Colibri is a new Peruvian spot from the chef behind Causita and Rosaliné. Yes, it’s technically a pop-up, but it’s destined to stick around for at least a year. And considering how good the food was on our visit, let’s hope it’s even longer than that. While the chef’s other spots focus mainly on Nikkei-style dishes and modern twists to Peruvian cooking, Colibi’s menu is all about the traditional classics. Think citrusy ceviche filled with sea bass and sweet potato, briny squid ink rice, and tallerines rojos, a ragu-based pasta topped with crispy chicken thigh and homemade cheese sauce—the highlight of our night. There’s also a fun drink menu filled with pisco sours, caipirinhas, and chilcanos. Given Colibri’s central location—within walking distance to all the big theaters and across the street from the Netflix campus—this is your new go-to pre-event dinner spot in Hollywood.
