Give Your Pooch a Doggie Dessert From Pacci Ristorante on National Dog Day

Today is National Dog Day, and Pacci Ristorante Executive Chef Keira Moritz is giving new meaning to the phrase “doggie bag.” Moritz, pictured to the left with her own dog named Magnolia, has added “Pacci Pups” canine cookies to the dessert menu at Pacci. These homemade dog biscuits are only $2 for a bag of six and are sure to keep any dog’s tail wagging. While your pup might not be able to join you for dinner at Midtown’s new Italian steakhouse, you can still bring them home a taste of Pacci by picking up a bag of biscuits on your way out.

Pacci Ristorante: 866 West Peachtree Street, NW; 678-412-2402.
