Storico Fresco Alimentari e Ristorante’s co-owner and culinary director Mike Patrick goes straight to the motherland to find authentic inspiration for the menu at his Buckhead restaurant and market. He’s back from a summer excursion to Italy, his head loaded with ideas, recipes and techniques destined for Storico Fresco’s kitchen. Delve into the trip’s memorable meals and edible explorations by following Patrick’s well-documented Instagram photo journal. His research cuts through the Eternal City of Rome, ventures out to the Tuscan coastal town of Ponte Rosso for a beach cookout of baby crabs and tomatoes tossed with strozzapreti and baby clams and revels in a Michelin-starred meal in Rimini that’s capped by “a mind bender” of cuttlefish cappuccino topped with squid ink dust. Wish you could have tagged along? Turn sighs into seats at Storico Fresco to enjoy tasting menu selections as well as prepared foods influenced by Patrick’s travels.
