East Harriet, Linden Hills Restaurants Clinch Local Awards

The Charlie Awards recognize excellence in the Twin Cities restaurant scene.

As anyone who's managed to get a table at either Linden Hills' Tilia or East Harriet's Piccolo will tell you, both restaurants are fantastic.

It just so happens, though, that local foodie judges at the Charlie Awards have finally realized this. According to the Star-Tribune, Tilia was just awarded the 2012 Charlie for "Outstanding Restaurant," while Piccolo's chef Doug Flicker walked home with "Best Chef."

Both Piccolo's and Tilia's official Twitter accounts posted messages last night expressing how "humbled" they were at recieving the awards.

Piccolo was the 2011 winner for "Outstanding Restaurant."

The Charlies were launched last year by local food writer Sue Zelickson, as she sought a home-grown way to celebrate the restaurants and organizations that make the local foodie scene hum.
