Lelli’s restaurant, a Michigan dining icon, will commemorate their 70th anniversary by taking its fine dining ingenuity a step further, creating a complete guest “70th year V.I.P.” experience from now through Thursday, December 31, 2009. The “70th year V.I.P.” special will give guests a chance to enjoy Lelli’s signature dish, a six course “Fillet Mignon” dinner for only $29.99 per person.
“We’re elated about our anniversary celebration,” said Becky Thibodeaux (Lelli), vice president and general manager. “This occasion marks 70 years of service since my grandfather Nerio Lelli welcomed his first customer at our original location in Detroit.”
Open since 1939, Lelli’s made its reputation serving the best minestrone soup in Detroit, homemade pastas and a divulged fillet with the famous “Zip” sauce. Now located in Auburn Hills, Michigan at 885 North Opdyke Rd. south of the Palace of Auburn Hills, the upscale steakhouse and Italian restaurant offers the historical taste of class and sophistication through its diversified menu of antipasto, sliced tenderloin, veal, grilled yellow fin tuna and much more.
“My father has told me stories of how my grandfather would serenade with his violin, while my grandmother mingled with guests,” said Thibodeaux. “While partaking in 70 years of dining history, Lelli’s will offer guests our signature meal at an unbeatable price.”
The Special includes: Filet Mignon & Potatoes for the main course, Antipasto tray, Soup, Salad, Pasta and Spumoni for dessert (gratuity and tax not included, special available after 4:00 p.m. Monday – Sunday and may not be used in association with any other discounts or promotions).
