This Peruvian restaurant on Figueroa has only been open since 2018, and yet, it feels like it’s been part of the neighborhood for decades. Run by chef Maritza Gomez, who lives closeby, Rosty’s menu is filled with dishes like sweet and zesty pollo a la brasa and lomo saltado with sirloin beef strips, sauteed vegetables, and fries. The dish that always ends up on our table here, though, is la copa nostra. This massive glass goblet of mixed ceviche is filled with an array of both raw and sauteed seafood in a properly spicy tigre de leche.
