Pacci Ristorante Holds Gulf Aid Fundraiser—“We Cook While They Clean”

Pacci Ristorante is joining the relief efforts for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill by holding a “We Cook While They Clean” fundraiser. One dollar from every seafood dish on the Pacci lunch and dinner menus will be donated to the Gulf Relief Foundation until the fishermen are back at sea. This nonprofit organization provides relief to the Gulf Coast fishing community and its families. So stop by Pacci and support this important cause by selecting any of the savory seafood items on Chef Keira Moritz’ menu including calamari with spicy aioli; mussels and clams in anisette cream with heirloom cherry tomatoes; halibut with roasted alba mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, grilled corn and corn butter; and sea scallops with wild mushroom risotto and sweet pea nage. Pacci has been committed to sustainable fishing practices from its start and is part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program, which certifies seafood suppliers from sustainable fishing environments and promotes ocean resource conservation through sensible seafood choices.

Pacci Ristorante: 866 West Peachtree Street, NW, adjacent to the Hotel Palomar; 678-412-2402.
