The Pecan Restaurant bears distinction as the only fine dining experience on the south side of Atlanta, but the award-winning restaurant’s true claim to fame is their passionate sense of ingenuity, which is infused in everything they create. Indeed, there is a touch of whimsical inventiveness found in The Pecan’s cozy, quaint space, as warm woods and deep reds share the spotlight with a fun, near century-old wall-length Coca-Cola mural that was discovered during a remodel. This sense of artistry also provides the philosophic foundation of The Pecan’s kitchen, as Owner and Executive Chef Tony Morrow has developed a menu around a fascinating culinary concept called Southern fusion, in which the charming comforts of Southern cuisine are ingeniously united with the bold flavors of wherever his global travels inspire him, including France, Italy, and India. Add a selection from The Pecan’s stellar wine list, and you instantly have an event that simply must be enjoyed.
