Now she’s just plain giddy about her latest opportunity at Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar, inside of the Brice Hotel in downtown Savannah.

“I’m so excited about doing Italian food here. I don’t want to make any promises about what it will be except my version of Italian food,” she says.

The day we spoke (her third on the job), she had barely met all of her staff. She couldn’t really give me a tour of the property yet. “I don’t know my way around yet. But isn’t this place beautiful?”

Christmas Brunch Shortcuts They’ll Never Suspect

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.

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”.
