Piccolo’s a Top Pick

September 15, 2009

The Auburn University Hotel and Dixon Conference Center recently renovated the lounge area on the east side of Ariccia’s. Joe and Josephine were invited to check it out on opening week and we’ve since made a repeat appearance to further investigate.

Piccolo’s lounge features a small plate menu with some very interesting dishes and even better prices. They also have a customized drink menu to complement the atmosphere. Friday and Saturday evenings include a jazz ensemble to complete the “wow” factor. They even have their own hours of operation and entrance, further drawing the distinction between themselves and just another hotel lounge.

A lot of Auburn residents sneak out of town to Opelika to avoid the college age crowd and similarly designed environs. No more. Piccolo’s combines a revamped fireplace, cozy seating and the previously mentioned menu and drinks to provide the perfect after work gathering spot or pre-evening meeting place.

Joe and Josephine recommend everything on the dessert menu as well as the kobe beef sliders. We haven’t yet sampled more than the high gravity draft beer from the drink menu, but the concoctions all look inviting. All in all, Joe Auburn says you owe it to yourself to experience Auburn’s newest entertainment, drinking and dining establishment.
