Here we are inside the new, much-larger Piccino restaurant, now open out on Minnesota Street in a bright yellow building that's hard to miss. The structure also houses soon-to-open DIG wine store and MAC, a modern clothing store. As you can see, the new Piccino boasts lots of wood and a wide-open space filled with communal tables and natural light. For additional details on archtiect Sagan Piechota's work tap Madame Hopper and read the captions in the gallery above. Owners Sher Rogat and Margherita Stewart-Sagan are delighted to have new digs tripled in size from their former cafe. Chef Rachel Silcocks has expanded the menu to include even more thin-crust pizzas, ample pasta selections and several entrees. Pastry chef Alicia Harper turns out sweets for the restaurant and the cafe next door. (Yes, there's a cafe next door.)

Here's a look at the new dinner, lunch and dessert menus. The wine selection skews international and beer comes on tap from Magnolia and Linden Street. Hours, as of yesterday's opening, are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday; while the cafe is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. According to Zagat, brunch service begins again in six to eight weeks.
