Peachtree Section Holiday Luncheon
Saturday, December 7, 2013, 11:30 am
Ernie Smallman, Event Planner
Pricci’s was a great experience in 2012 and has becoming a tradition. Pricci’s ranked #18th of Atlanta’s top 100 in the 2013 Jezebel Magazine publication’s A-List for Atlanta dining. The write-up describes Pricci’s as “a classic restaurant environment that serves up a mix of old school romance and fun.” The article recognizes Chef Piero Premoli, an acclaimed third generation Italian chef, for sensible but delicate dishes made with local produce with “the enthusiasm that only an Italian can show for the cuisine of his homeland”. Atlanta Magazine likewise rates Pricci’s as one of the top restaurants in Atlanta.
Chief Piero Premoli has ruled the kitchen at Pricci’s since 2005. Although our entrée selection is mainstream Americana (surf and turf) the vegetables and dessert reflect Premoli’s passion for his native Italy. He regularily visits Italy to keep up to date on Italian culinary trends and to maintain his relationship with trusted suppliers. Premoli and Pricci’s have been recognized for excellence by the Accademis Italia Della Cucina, an Italian Cultural institution, and are the only chef and restaurant with this designation in Atlanta.
As we did last year this will be our opportunity tor recognize our loyal newsletter advertisers who will again be out guests for the luncheon and present our annual section awards. Members will again have the opportunity to win valuable door prizes for responses to queries of random facts provided by our newsletter advertisers.
The menu is a tried and true favorite but prepared with a different twist for the vegetables, bread, and dessert.
- Salad: Caesar or chef’s choice
- Entrée: Grilled Atlantic salmon and Rib Eye Steak with chef’s choice of seasonal vegetable
- Dessert: Cheesecake or a special Italian delicacy.
- Coffee and tea
A cash bar will precede lunch with presentations, recognitions, and announcements with dessert.
I have previously dined at Pricci’s and enjoyed a three course special with the charge still well over $100.00 for two without cocktails. The menu for our event is a value at $37.00 (alcoholic beverage are additional). We will have exclusive use of the restaurant and will be seated in the main dining room as we were last year. Pricci’s is closed for lunch on Saturdays but is opening just for Peachtree Section. Parking will be available in the Pricci’s parking lot.
Please remember to bring an unwrapped toy for the Marine Corp Toys for Tots program.
