Hard to go unnoticed when you’re as involved in the community as debonair Ray’s on the River and fun-loving Tin Lizzy’s Cantina. Restaurant peers couldn’t let a year go by without nominating the two philanthropic eateries for the 2015 Georgia Restaurant Association Crystal of Excellence (GRACE) Awards in the Distinguished Service category. What a sweet honor in itself! The icing comes when the GRACE Academy announces GRACE award winners during its annual GRACE Awards Gala taking place Sunday, November 1 in The Foundry at Puritan Mill. GRACE Academy consists of all past GRACE nominees and current Georgia Restaurant Association members. Talk about a grace-filled room. The Giving Kitchen, another GRACE-ful do-gooder, is an Industry Partner of the Year finalist.
