AOC tomorrow night (and Coni's last weekend)

Still working on bucket list checks before my SoCal departure in a week, and tomorrow night it will be AOC. Unfortunately there's a private event on the patio so we'll be inside; I assume that's not a complete tragedy. What are the "must haves" or highly-recommended dishes at AOC?
Finally hit up Coni's on Sunday after landing at LAX. I didn't call ahead to verify that Sergio would be at the helm, but, thankfully, he was indeed cooking at Sunday lunch. What awesome ceviche, with shrimp, octopus and fish, and jicama and cucumber! Also enjoyed the camarones borrachos. Wanted to try the marlin tacos, but lacked the bandwith. Need to squeeze in a return visit.
Again, what to eat at AOC?
Their blood orange and kumquat dessert dish that is rightly raved about in the dish of the month thread is a must order if those flavors are up your alley.
On my most recent visit, I thought their peach, ricotta salad was fantastic. And the Spanish fried chicken is always worth a go in my opinion
Was at AOC a couple of weeks ago for dinner. spanish fried chicken, lamb tagine and grilled peaches were winners.
