403 W. 12TH STREET, LOS ANGELES

(213) 415 – 1821

barcito, an Argentinian tapas restaurant is blowing up with delicious shared plates and tasty cocktails. Located in Downtown Los Angeles on 12th and Grand Ave. Just three blocks away from Staples Center.

Andrea ( General Manger, Owner) opened barcito with a vision of providing fresh shared plates at an affordable price for locals. Everything on the menu is under $15 with craft beers and cocktails under $11.

 

I tried a number of dishes and I can say all were excellent! My favorites were the chicken liver mousse, risotto a la sepia (squid ink risotto), pulpo ( crispy squid, fried egg, salsa verde), and the langostinos. Don’t forget dessert. Their churros are out of this world!

What a gem!
