About this event
Pretending that 2020 was an aberration, Peachtree Section will return to Petite Violette without the six foot social distancing requirement. The forty-four who attended the Holiday Luncheon event last December can attest to the excellent cuisine served. The restaurant is known for theme menus with summer and early fall offerings of “Mediterranean, Cajan Creole, and Wild Game" dinners. Dinner with a Diva events with the Atlanta Opera collaboration produced performances such as Les Misérables and Porky and Bess, both attended by the event planners.
Co- owner Anthony Groop has been the Head Chef since 1992, and as a youngster worked in the restaurant with his father Wolfgang since 1974. Anthony did leave Atlanta temporarily to train for several years and apprentice at Lake Louise Inn in Canada and also in London at the Savoy Hotel with Auguste Escoffier, who is known as the father of modern French cooking.
The annual awards of Peachtree Section will follow a short performance by Claudio Pestana, who recently was the director for the sold-out Marietta Theater’s production of Della’s Diner. Claudia was a hit with last year's attendees. Peachtree is fortunate to have Claudio agree to perform for us again in 2021.
