A little Brooklyn in Beverly Hills..Pici

Artichoke Fritters Boursin Cheese, Herb Aioli

Before I get into the deliciousness that is Pici Beverly Hills.. Let me first tell you a little bit about the man behind it..

Jason Harley aka Chef J aka ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY!
When you walk into Pici.. Chef J will most likely be the one to greet you, seat you and give you a go of the menu..and if you are unsure he can identified by the silver wallet chain perpetually attached to his denim.
Okay now lets talk about the the place.. I was introduced to Pici a few weeks ago as I was having a completely separate meeting about something else entirely.. 

Here's kinda how the convo went..
