Piccolo Engagement Dinner! MLK 1.20.14

piccolo minneapolisI got engaged!  David proposed at Piccolo on an unassuming MLK Monday and I was entirely surprised.  The entire restaurant knew and I ate my whole tasting menu without knowing until the ring came delivered in a fake panna cotta dessert jar.  The experience was absolutely amazing and David planned it to the tee.  The first dish was the Chicken Liver Mousse Amuse– absolutely amazing, great job Patrick!
