La Piccola Casa, Mamaroneck refurbishes...

News of the demise of La Piccola Casa have been greatly exaggerated. There is a fresh coat of paint in the dining rooms, and the tables facing Harbor Island Park at 410 W. Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck are as inviting as ever. Recent tastes of Chef Walter’s Clams Oreganata, Soft Shell Crab, Seafood Pasta and jumbo Veal Chop were quite good…
For some reason the internet has been using the address of his original location. La Piccola Casa moved to the landmark James Fenimore Cooper House several years ago…

Is that where Jonathan Seagull was? Oh wait - never mind

Stopped in for a quick lunch at La Piccola Casa and got a seat in the bar/lounge facing Harbor Island Park and the flowering trees. I came for my first Soft Shell Crabs of the season and chef Walter was happy to comply. Simply sautéed with fresh broccoli on the side…wonderful. It is spring, after all.
Noticed the tables next to us were also having the soft shells…
