Sooo-ho Sad: Italian Newcomer DOH’d, Belgian-Waffles Spot Closed


After opening a little over a month ago, Piccolo Cucina has been shuttered by the Department of Health owing to what a sign on the door says is a “delay in processing necessary paperwork.” It’s sure to get back on its feet, but the news is as not as good for PetalBelle, the tiny European-style café that replaced a former fish store on Sullivan Street just a year ago. Its shutter is down and the phone is disconnected. The store’s specialty was Liege waffles and mini-cupcakes.
