Picasso Bistro & Pizzeria has been serving Jackson’s best pizzas out of our stone hearth oven since opening in August, 2005. Picasso’s Master Pizzas feature local favorites like the G-Man supreme and the Brandon’s Butcher Block. When customers aren’t eating pizza, they’re raving about Picasso’s fresh salads, hand-cut steak, or freshly flown in Hawaiian fish.
As the first employee hired at Picasso, James Salter took instant ownership of the restaurant and treated it as his own. James has been in the food service industry for over 17 years, starting his career at Wolfe’s Market, a prime butcher shop on California’s Route 66. While working at Picasso, James was fortunate enough to meet his wife, Lindsay.
One of his regulars at the time, Dr. Harry Baddour approached James about forming a partnership. In September, 2007, Dr. Baddour and James purchased Picasso. After maintaining a wonderful working partnership for three years, James and Lindsay purchased the remaining stock of Picasso Bistro & Pizzeria.
Now, Picasso is a family business. James runs Picasso with his wife Lindsay and their three young children. Together, they have been perfecting the art of pizza and service ever since. With Picasso’s newly expanded full bar, Jackson’s favorite pizzeria now has one of the most extensive wine selections in town as well as an ever changing collection of draft beer.
