About Picasso Deli
Picasso Cafe Novi’s unique combination of classic deli style & Works of Art sandwiches, along with an array of soups and salads, has made them a local favorite since 2001. Along with serving the best lunch in town, Picasso Café also serves a variety of breakfast choices and premium coffee drinks.
Wait! That’s not all! Picasso café also has a million different catering options (OK….maybe not a million, but who’s counting?) From simple boxed lunches to upscale gala’s Picasso Catering will exceed your expectations.
Where did the name come from?
Allen & Michael (sons of Jerry & Nihad) were driving one day trying to think of a name for the deli they were about to open when it struck them…how about Picasso Café…Where every sandwich is a work of art! Bam, just like that they had a name. Now how do we tie everything together, Michael asked? Lets name the sandwiches after artists! Good idea. Lets display local artists every month so the décor is ever changing! Another good idea! Lets think of sandwiches that nobody else would think of making! Yet another awesome idea! (We don’t know how we keep coming up with these great ideas, I guess its just a gift.)
Supporting Local Artists!
Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is important to us. Along with charitable donations and fundraisers, another way Picasso Café gives back is by supporting local artists. Each month a local artist displays their works of art in our café (many available for purchase). Not only does this give the artist a venue to show off their talents, but it also makes the décor of the café ever-changing and fun.
Using the very BEST Ingredients!
Serving our customers the highest quality ingredients is the cornerstone of Picasso Café’s business philosophy. But, how can a company use better ingredients and still deliver them to their customers at the same price point as competitors? The answer to this is built directly into the PRG business model. Being family owned allows us to have extremely low corporate costs; no overpaid board members, no fancy company cars, and no elaborate corporate offices. Instead of spending monies on big corporation fringe benefits, we spend it on purchasing higher quality ingredients.
About Picasso Restaurant Group
Over 25 years ago, Gerald Attee and his wife, Nihad, opened up their first deli in Ann Arbor, MI. Although the deli was only 500 square feet, what it lacked in size was trumped by the owners' passion for great food and a personal connection with their patrons. To this day, the lessons they learned in that small deli are engrained into the fabric of each and every location.
Since our humble beginnings, Picasso Restaurant Group has grown into a company that operates 7 eateries in the Metro-Detroit area. From upscale delis to servicing office buildings, hospitals and schools, PRG strives to deliver the very best in products and services.
