Roswell restaurateurs Ryan Pernice and Ted Lahey of Table & Main and Osteria Mattone are being recognized by the Georgia Restaurant Association as finalists for “Restaurateur of the Year” for small, independent restaurants in Georgia! Finalists for the Georgia Restaurant Association Crystal of Excellence Awards are peer nominated and then decided by the official GRACE Academy. The winners for each category will be announced at the gala on Nov. 1.
A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank, an organization that fights hunger by engaging, educating and empowering the community.
“In celebration of the 9th Annual GRACE Awards Gala, we are delighted to continue the tradition of recognizing our industry for their excellence and achievement,” said Karen Bremer, Executive Director of the Georgia Restaurant Association.
