The Butler’s team was thrilled to feature the newest member of the family, Piccione Pastry, at the Tenth Annual Table Tops event today at The Ritz-Carlton in Clayton! This stunning event benefitted the Friends of St. Louis Children’s Hospital Endowment Fund for Camp Rhythm, a summer camp designed for children with heart conditions.
A total of 71 elaborately-decorated table tops were created by local designers and showcased various boutiques and businesses in the St. Louis area. Brian Blasingame, our Director of Visual Design, was the talented designer of Piccione Pastry’s table top. Brian created a grand entrance for the much-anticipated Italian pastry shop, attracting an overwhelming amount of attention with displays of mouthwatering Italian pastries. An assortment of mini Italian Cannoli’s, Tiramisu Cups, Cream Puffs, Tricolor Cakes, and Italian Spritz cookies were just a few of the goodies on display (sampling encouraged!).
Elizabeth and Richard Nix, Jr. opened the doors to Piccione Pastry at the heart of the Delmar Loop this past Tuesday, April 16th. The name Piccione, meaning “pigeon” in Italian, and was inspired by Rick’s grandmother, Grace Viviano Piccione along with his family’s history on Delmar. The late-night pastry shop features authentic Italian desserts and savory snacks made from scratch, along with premium Lavazza Italian coffees and beverages. Located at the corner of Delmar and Skinker at 6197 Delmar Ave., Piccione Pastry is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday 11:00 am – 9:00 pm and Thursday through Saturday 11:00 am – 11:00 pm. It is the perfect spot to stop in for an afternoon treat, after dinner dessert, or late night snack!
