Piccino Easter Menu

  • April 2012

“I like the tidy, simple aesthetic that’s popping up in restaurants these days. Maybe it’s because I really enjoy neutral colors that let content (food) take center stage. I bullied our table into splitting food at this joint called Piccino which had a special Easter menu.”
