ATLANTA, July 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's officially summer, meaning it's time to change our eating habits as vibrant produce is bountiful and fresh from the farms making for delicious local food. Executive Chef Janine Falvo and her team at Briza, an Atlanta Midtown restaurant, are proud to launch their new summer menu.

Chef Falvo incorporated some of her signature dishes into the new menu. She recommends diners start with the pei mussels (Sweetwater 420, poblanos, garlic grilled bread) and the fried chicken (waffle bites, coca cola bbq sauce). Then enjoy one of several new entrees, including the berkshire pork chop (summer succotash, bacon-tomato broth, crispy okra) and the halibut (lobster homefries, truffled hollandaise). And, just in time for fresh peach season, the bartenders have mastered the georgia bellini (sparkling wine, muddled georgia peach).

Briza, an Atlanta farm-to-table restaurant, is adjacent to the Renaissance® Atlanta Midtown Hotel at 866 West Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta. Briza serves up farm-to-table fare with a Southern flair for diners looking for a new culinary experience. Briza, a restaurant in Atlanta with private dining options, also provides the perfect vibe for wedding-related festivities, such as an Atlanta rehearsal dinner venue.
