Coming Soon: Piccolo
Andrew Zimmern reports that Doug Flicker has snapped up a space at 43rd and Bryant and will be opening up his own restaurant, called Piccolo (a possible reference to the pint-sized dining room?), by January. Flicker has been bouncing around since Auriga closed nearly three years ago--Auriga's former home has yet to be leased...is it officially the second-least desirable restaurant space, behind the old Tiberon/Temple site?--with stints at Porter & Frye, Mission, D'Amico Kitchen, etc., so it will be great to see him heading his own kitchen once again.
