Pacci's Earth Day Menu

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Pacci is passionate about preserving the environment and is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on Thursday, April 22 with a special three-course menu from Chef Keira Moritz. The cost is $35 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, and will be offered that night only in addition to the regular menu.
Appetizers on the Earth Day menu include local greens with candied pecans, Sweet Grass Dairy goat cheese croutons, Georgia peach vinaigrette and port reduction; smoked Georgia shrimp crespelle with Lolla Rossa and tomato vinaigrette; and grilled plantation quail with corn pudding and arugula pesto. Entrée options include peanut crusted mountain trout with warm potato gnocchi and escarole salad; porcini dusted pork tenderloin medallions with wild mushroom ragout, truffle potato gratin and Marsala jus; and Springer Mountain chicken breast with grilled scallion and roasted tomato risotto and toasted garlic. The dessert course features pecan praline bread pudding with peach zabaione and peanut butter mascarpone cheesecake with Savannah tupelo honey.
The restaurant is also giving guests the opportunity to recycle and receive wine discounts with its Cork to Fork promotion in partnership with ReCORK America. To help ReCORK America obtain more corks for reuse, Pacci is asking patrons to bring in real corks from wine bottles and to buy a bottle of wine with their dinner. The restaurant will deduct 2 percent off the total bill for every cork brought in up to a maximum of 20 percent off. This offer is limited to natural cork wine closures only, and does not include plastic or metal closures. Wine cork closures are 100 percent natural, biodegradable and renewable, so this is another great way for Atlantans to embrace more sustainable living practices.
