THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pacci Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Georgia native Keira Moritz abandoned a major in criminal justice for the culinary world, a decision that led her back home to become the top toque at this contemporary restaurant. While Italian cuisine and meat are the focus of the menu, vegetarians will find lovely dishes, such as the wild mushroom risotto, any of several contorni, gnocchi, or the cannellini stew with olive oil and Parmesan. Omnivores may start with the Kobe beef carpaccio---“pacci” is short for carpaccio, by the way. But we also suggest the crisp calamari with its accompanying aïoli and lemon. After that, go with steak all the way, especially the Wagyu flat-iron steak. But except for the mushroom demi-glace, we don’t understand the rest of the accompanying sauces, and would suggest skipping them as they would tend to overpower the meat. Desserts include many of the familiar treats, such as tiramisu and a buttermilk panna cotta. The wine list holds many intriguing offerings, including a substantial half-bottle list. Several may be ordered by the half glass to enable experimentation. And while we wish there were at least one traditional method Italian sparkler on the list, we find plenty here to enjoy---all the way up to Sassicaia, the great Italian Super Tuscan.
