As if Thanksgiving could ruin our appetites! We’re getting tired of trying to rework turkey into our lunch menu, so to give us a break we headed up a few blocks to Piccolo Cafe on 274 West 40th Street for our little taste of Italy.
Piccolo offers authentic and fresh food and drinks. The idea formed between two friends coming from Italy who wanted to make their first venture during the Christmas Holiday Market. Their cafe started as a 30 square foot espresso bar that cold and snowy winter in Union Square has now expanded to 4 locations across the city. Sadly the location near us doesn’t sell wine, but espresso is the next best thing. Our favorites on the menu include the Truffle Toast and Tuna Focaccia.
