Give the gift of small food in a grand package at Piccolo

The foodie on your list already has a Zoodle-maker, a lifetime subscription to Lucky Peach, an autographed copy of the Prune Cookbook, and a standing reservation at Spoon and Stable.

What can you do to impress him or her? Gift certificates for a splendid meal are always a welcome stocking stuffer, but it doesn't necessarily carry the gravitas you need to truly make a memorable impact. You want hugs and high-fives in return for this gift, and Piccolo has truly thought of everything -- both are included in the tailored dining experiences they've packaged for your favorite foodie.
