Above: Chef Bruce Hill’s housemade pasta at Picco in Larkspur.
Picco owner Chef Bruce Hill is one of California’s food pioneers.
He began his career working with Jeremiah Towers at the now legendary Stars in the 1980s. And he has opened and cooked at some of the Bay Area’s most important, landmark restaurants like Aqua and Oritalia.
“Hill is an immensely talented chef,” wrote restaurant critic Michael Bauer for the San Francisco Chronicle in late 2013.” He worked at Stars in its heyday, brought fusion food to the Bay Area with Oritalia, cooked food more electrifying than the view at Waterfront, and invented several products, including a burger press that’s now sold at Williams-Sonoma. In other words, he’s a very busy and versatile guy.
For more than ten years now, Picco in Larkspur has been a favorite Italian destination for one of the most sophisticated groups of fine diners in the world. These folks know good food…
And we’re proud to report that Chef Bruce pours Pievalta Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi by the glass.
