Piccolo Lyytikainen, the Finnish-born chef-owner of this tiny restaurant in a quaint village house—serves beautifully prepared and presented European cuisine. Creations include Scandinavian-influenced dishes such as B.C. venison with a juniper-and-lingonberry demi-glace and charbroiled fillet of beef with Gorgonzola sauce. For dessert the chocolate terrine Finlandia and vodka-moistened lingonberry crepes are hard to resist. The 250-item wine list includes many hard-to-find
vintages. The indoor tables are cozy and candlelighted; the outdoor patio is a pleasant summer dining spot.
