A special note from Doug Flicker:


It is with a full heart that I would like to announce the closing of my restaurant. Piccolo has been the realization of a dream that allowed me to cook with my heart for the last 7 years. Simply put, times change and so have we. Amy and I are working on new projects and we look forward to sharing them with you as they finalize. In the meantime, I do hope to see you at Sandcastle on Lake Nokomis in the summers and Esker Grove at the Walker Art Center.

Piccolo would never have been the success it was without the endless work of an amazing group of talented individuals, the love and partnership of my wife Amy, as well as my original business partner, Jim Andrus, and you the dining public. I truly appreciate the time we had together at Piccolo.  

Thank you, 

Doug Flicker

2017 and Beyond

Piccolo will close on Saturday, March 11th, 2017. Two of Chef Doug Flicker’s current staff, Chef de Cuisine Cameron Cecchini and Cook Grisha Hammes, will be revamping the space to open Tenant Restaurant in spring 2017. They are amazingly skilled and will be a great boon to the food community.
