JOIN CELEBRATA ATLANTA AS WE CONTINUE OUT INTIMATE DINING TOUR OF ATLANTA'S TOP RESTAURANTS. THIS TIME WE RETURN TO THE UPSCALE SETTING OF BUCKHEAD LIFE GROUP'S PRICCI. CELEBRATE ATLANTA MEMBERS WILL ENJOY A THREE COURSE PRICE FIX MENU FOR ONLY $29. MEMBERS WILL ALSO HAVE THE OPTION OF A WINE PAIRING COURSE WITH EACH COURSE. IF YOU OPT FOR THE WINE PAIRING, YOUR COST WILL BE $44.



We will have two tables of 10 and enjoy three courses with a wine pairing with each course. Of course, you can forgo the wine pairing and just enjoy the three course meal.



Either way you cannot go wrong with the fine italian landmark. Chef Piero Premoli has pulled out all the stops for our dinner and wine pairing menu (see below) at this Buckhead Life Group mainstay



For our dinner, we will dine enjoying food and wine from the Messina region of Italy. Messina is known as the “Door of Sicily,” a city port founded by the Greeks who named it Zancle. After the Greeks, the Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans all left their distinct mark with religion, science and gastronomy and an extremely interesting culture began to form in the middle of the Mediterranean. So join us as we celebrate the season with a toast to Messina and its eclectic flavors and traditions.
