Tribune Dining: Breakfast Redux, Piccolo Sogno

There’s more to today’s Tribune than just the six-chef roundtable that we wrote about earlier today.

Like the flood of reader response that poured in after the article on Mr. Breakfast from a few weeks ago. Too bad so much of it was off the mark — folks fixated too much on brunch and anti-Yankee sentiment, not breakfast.

But the real meat this week is Phil Vettel’s take on Piccolo Sogno, which he awards with a solid two stars. When TOC reviewed it a little over a month ago, they were more taken by the patio than the food — Vettel acknowledges the lure of the outdoor space, but also finds no savory dish worth complaining about (though the tomatoes in a seafood pasta dish clock in “dangerously close” to an overpowering level), though the desserts aren’t spectacular.
