Piccolo Sogno Due officially opened its doors on Thursday, giving folks in River North and nearby neighborhoods a chance to enjoy what those traveling to River West have for the last few years. A big difference here, where chef Todd Stein heads up the kitchen, is that the menu will have a large seafood focus.
Don't worry, you'll still get crispy-crust wood-fired pizzas, housemade pastas and even roasted chicken and grilled veal loin. But you'll also have the bounty of the sea with dishes featuring everything from grilled ahi, baked monkfish and braised salt cod to sauteed pike, baked sardine and grilled calamari. The best thing is that the menu allows for everyday dining and, as Stein told Eater in the past, "If people want authentic Italian, they'll go to Piccolo. If they want fish, they'll come here."
