The new Medici Tuscan Grill and Tosca Blu Bar are open at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel.

An enticing new restaurant has just come onto the Atlanta scene and restaurant goers throughout the city are invited to sample the unique sights, sounds and tastes of Medici~ a Tuscan Grill and Tosca Blu bar, both conveniently located in the Renaissance Waverly, a northwest Atlanta area hotel. The crown jewel of northwest Atlanta, the Renaissance Waverly Hotel recently completed extensive renovations that bring a contemporary feel to the traditional Southern hotel.

From the moment you enter into the inviting surroundings at the newly re-designed restaurant, the Tuscan experience begins. Earth-toned grass cloth covered walls, dramatic lighting and the warm tans of the tufted leather banquettes are a gentle complement to the subdued red-shaded sconces, elegant red drapings and spirited red, yellow, and tan carpeting that surround this restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia.

Seated at one of Medici's crisp white linen-draped tables, accented with highly contemporary, Waterford flatware and delicately hanging carafes of oil and herb-infused vinegar, enjoying the scents of fresh herbs and spices wafting from the kitchen, you know you've come to the right place to sample the delicious fare of country Mediterranean cuisine.

Noted for the aromatic and simple but elegant preparation of its local products, the Tuscany region of Italy has become a prime travel destination, largely because of its food and wines. The Medici menu embraces this culinary style by highlighting the meats, fish, and native herbs and spices characteristic of the region's rich countryside. Savor such dishes as the mozzarella-stuffed veal meatball with Marsala cream or trio of seafood, mushroom and tomato bruschetta appetizers. Continue your dining journey with white bean soup with Italian sausage and kale, plump potato gnocchi with butter sage sauce, or one of several Tuscan-style rubbed steaks. Complete your meal with one of the tempting hand-crafted desserts, prepared fresh daily in the Medici pastry kitchen. And as the knowledgeable service staff greets you with a warm smile, you are immediately captivated by Medici's thoughtful, savvy service.

The well-conceived wine list features an array of popular selections from Italy and California, as well as other notable regions throughout the world.

The relaxed sophistication of the dining room of this restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia flows into the adjoining Tosca Blu bar with its stylishly trendy décor, comfortable furnishings, muted lighting, and blend of soft and vibrant colors. The sizeable sleek bar is surrounded by conversation tables and pockets of inviting living room seating.

Innovative cocktails and an extensive wine list are offered in the Atlanta café restaurant Tosca Blu, as are special menu creations, including sandwiches, soups, and appetizers that echo the Tuscan fare of Medici.
