Fresca Folks Opening Pasión in the Sunset

Fresca Folks Opening Pasión in the Sunset
Table of Contents

As you may already know, the Calvo-Perez family, known for the local Fresca restaurants, took over the former PJ’s Oysterbed location in the Sunset. But instead of opening a fourth Fresca location, they’re opening a new restaurant called ~PASIÓN~. As son and chef Jose Calvo-Perez told me, the style will be “modern Nuevo Latino small plates and tapas, with Peruvian soul, but also Caribbean, Central and South American influences. And there will be a ceviche bar.” They are currently targeting July, and the 55-seat restaurant will have a full bar, plus there will eventually be an upstairs deck/patio that will seat 30 (it will also do double duty as a tented private dining room). Consultant Tony Kzaz will be overseeing Fresca locations while Jose will oversee the launch of Pasión, and eventually a chef de cuisine will be hired as well. I’ll reveal menu items as they make their way to me.
