A Little Bit of That 


05.20.09


Gooey cheese, spiced meat, fried plantains, and veggies meet in harmony inside a crisp corn cake. This delicacy, called arepas, is the specialty of Pica Pica, a Venezuelan restaurant in Napa's Oxbow Public Market. "Pica pica" translates to "a little bit of this and a little bit of that," and the restaurant is holding true to its title by offering a little more to customers with its new plans to expand and offer a Latin-style beverage bar. The bar is set to open in August, and folks can quench their thirst with fancy drinks like fruit shakers (blended fruit drinks), sangria and various wine cocktails. There will also be Venezuelan bar food, featuring such refreshing dishes as ceviche. Instead of buying an expensive flight to South America this summer, take a short trip to Pica Pica and dine on sweet corn pancakes, yucca fries and empanadas, and delight in the flavors of another culture right in your backyard. Pica Pica. Oxbow Public Market, 610 First St., Napa. 707.251.3757.
