DINE WITH ADELE’S TO HELP BREAST CANCER RESEARCH THIS OCTOBER

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 10/16/22

The neighborhood eatery will release specialty menus whose proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research

EXTENDED UNTIL 10/31!!

On Wednesday, October 5th, Adele’s will launch special menus to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Located in the Old Fourth Ward, fundraising menus will be available during dinner and brunch until Wednesday, October 12th (Extended to 10/31). Adele’s is part of Nashville-based group, Red Pebbles Hospitality, who expanded the popular concept to Atlanta earlier this year. This initiative is of special and personal importance to the company as a whole, as too many members of the Red Pebbles team – both in Atlanta and Nashville – have been directly affected by breast cancer.

Hannah Young, executive chef of the Edgewood Avenue eatery, has curated menus that incorporate healthy, cancer-fighting superfoods suggested to patients by doctors to maintain an immune-healthy diet. The intimate dinner menu consists of dishes such as lentils with roasted sweet potatoes, shallots, and spinach, salmon with cauliflower, wilted kale, and housemade pepper relish, and raspberry rose cheesecake with an almond graham cracker crust. Furthermore, Adele’s will reimagine their weekend brunch buffet with pink pastries and cakes, and incorporate additional pink dishes and cocktails. 

“This is an important initiative we have spearheaded in years past with great success,” says Howard Greenstone, CEO of Red Pebbles Hospitality, “As many of our staff have been directly affected by breast cancer, this is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts.”

The Adele’s beverage team has crafted specialty cocktails for the event – the pink gin-based Fight Back cocktail boasts citrus notes with lemon and orange liqueur while the tequila-based Angel Wings cocktail will be slightly sweeter with hints of coconut and pomegranate. For brunch, guests can expect riffs on classic brunch beverages such as the Pink Bellini

The Adele’s team will be wearing pink ribbon lapel pins, and the back-of-house staff will wear pink ball caps with the Adele’s logo. Red Pebbles Hospitality will donate a portion of the proceeds from the dinner, brunch, and cocktail menus to breast cancer research.
