The best thing about living in NYC is that there are endless opportunities to find great restaurants. The streets that I think I know so well, surprise me regularly with their hidden gems. Piccolo Cafe, in New York City, have 4 locations all throughout Manhattan. Piccolo, meaning small in Italian, literally describes their cafe- with (my guesstimate) of seating for about 18 per cafe. The atmosphere is great, very rustic and warm inside with an old school Italian theme.
This sandwich has a bunch of my favorite ingredients: Warmed focaccia filled with arugula, prosciutto cotto (cured ham), truffle pate and drizzled with some olive oil!
Here’s a close up picture, so you can see all the goods.
That brown ‘sauce’ you see is the truffle pate. I was very pleased that it was on both sides of the focaccia, because I can never get enough of it! Needless to say, I loved this panini!!
