Piccone’s Corner chef Nic Maraziti will preview seasonal dishes from the new restaurant and butchery opening November 2019
PORTLAND, Ore. – September 19, 2019 – Piccone’sCorner chef Nic Maraziti will prepare a special four-course pop-up dinner with wine pairings on Thursday, September 26 at Jacobsen Salt Company. The menu will feature handmade pasta, seasonal salads and Wallow & Root heritage pork from the restaurant’s farm in Sandy, Oregon. The wine pairings, curated by Austin Piccone, will focus on lesser-known Italian varietals, as well as local Pacific Northwest favorites.
Piccone’s Corner is rooted in the Italian tradition of family and food, and chef Maraziti incorporates classic Italian technique for his seasonal and locally sourced menu focused on scratch pastas, fire-roasted lamb and pork, and salt-cured whole fish. The new restaurant and butcher shop is scheduled to open November 2019.
