Eat like a real Italian at Pricci

posted on April 17, 2009 at 11:58 am
Pricci used to be my favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta. My family celebrated numerous special occasions (my high school and college graduation parties included) and went very often for dinner. Over time, Pricci’s brightness began to dull. The decor was faded and dated. And we just stopped going on a regular basis. But Pricci is getting exciting again thanks to its new refreshed interior and a (relatively) new chef. Chef Piero Premoli, who hails from Milan, has quite the pedigree including many high profile New York restaurants. The chef has worked hard on bringing a taste of the real Italy to Atlanta was his simple, yet refined menu.

I spoke with the chef over the phone the other day for another upcoming story and he told me about these regional dinners he’s been hosting once a month for the past seven months. Each dinner focuses on a specific region of Italy and only costs $29.95 for a three-course meal. Wine pairings (3 full glasses) is an extra $10. Here is a sample menu for this month’s dinner which, according to the chef, is almost sold out.

April in the Region of Marche

Le Marche Italy, located on the eastern Italian coast is a scenically beautiful region rich in tradition and history. Dining in Le Marche is like taking a journey through Central Italy. Far more varied and adventurous than its Tuscan neighbor, it is truly one of the great regional cuisines of Italy.
