BRAD A. JOHNSON: PICCOLINO IS THE POSHEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN SOUTH COUNTY
It occurs to me while I’m eating the panzanella at Piccolino that this is one of my favorite things in the whole world, a simple Italian bread salad made with little more than vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes and high-quality olive oil. It surprises me because that’s not something that usually enters my mind when eating bread salads anywhere else.
When food is this simple, everything has to be just right, and by that I mean mostly the tomatoes need to be just right. And in this case, the tomatoes are perfect.
