Step into the kitchen with Chef Andres Avayú

With over 1,000 restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, making a decision on where to dine can be quite difficult at times.  But of all the restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, how many of them are Chef-owned and operated?  Not too many.  Being a Chef-owned and operated restaurant has its perks.  The most obvious is that the Chef-owner has the ability to create and design dishes as they see fit.  And when you have an extremely talented and creative Chef, this means dedication to not only delicious food, but also the finest ingredients and most beautifully presented dishes.

THIS is what Chef-Owner Andres Avayu is to Piccolo.  His talent for infusing unique ingredients into traditional Italian recipes is what sets Piccolo apart from the hundreds of Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale.  He loves to bring in Squab, Opah, Quail and other unique ingredients that you won't find elsewhere.  Pushing the envelope with creativity and presentations is his forte.
