Christmas Brunch Shortcuts They’ll Never Suspect

12-16-2016 | Yahoo!

Shrimp and Grits Casserole
Dusty Grove, executive chef at Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar in Savannah, Ga., advises to take a traditionally multistep dish and turn it into a one-dish deal. “Many people don’t know that shrimp and grits can be prepared as a casserole,” he says. The night before your big brunch, add additional cream or milk to cooked grits along with diced cooked shrimp, ham, and a bit of gravy, if desired. Keep overnight in the fridge and bake until bubbling hot on Christmas morning; serve with extra gravy and cheese. “It’s a truly unexpected twist and much less work on the chef at home, allowing them to spend more time in the company of friends and family,” he says.

Pacci: Simple things, really good

11-30-2016 | Connect Savannah

While the Brice boasts an aura of modern Southern charm, Pacci possesses an Italian villa rustic farmhouse vibe. Furthermore, whilst they share the same space, Pacci is run as an independent restaurant, away from the hotel.  Based on our region’s environment, with “the plains that grow vegetation well” and the waters that essentially serve as an estuary, Grove believes that “we are in a really good spot for food”.

The Brice Hotel is housed in a rambling, three-story building dating to the 1860s that over the years has been used for various purposes, including a livery stable, cotton warehouse and Coca-Cola bottling plant. The hotel’s ground-floor, all-day restaurant, Pacci Italian Kitchen & Bar, is a cavernous space serving Italian-inspired dishes, from polenta with poached eggs in the morning to Coca-Cola-glazed short ribs with mushroom risotto for dinner.
