Lelli's 75th Anniversary Extravaganza!

Lelli’s 75th Anniversary summer Extravaganza!

Lelli’s of Auburn Hills, where great food and superior service is always our goal, proudly announces a celebration of 75 years of service “in the D”.  Join us as we look back at our history and look forward to a renewed focus on the future.

Beginning in June, and continuing each month of the summer, we will revisit preferred items from menus past and introduce some new and creative Italian delights that we are sure will become future favorites.

Fondly remembered delicacies like Zuppa Inglase, Sea Scallops and Frog Legs may share the menu with a new Risotto dish created by founder Nerio Lelli’s Granddaughter, Becky.  You may also see our Prime Rib served with our original Zip Sauce or our own unique interpretation of Filet Oscar.  Of course, no dining experience is complete without a pairing of fine wine from our extensive collection.

Three months of excellent food from the past and the present with tantalizing hints of future offerings will culminate in a special 3-day BIG EVENT. 
On September 25th at 4:30, the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce will celebrate with us in our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.  Local Dignitaries and VIP’s will be present for the occasion as well as WCSX 94.7  who will be broadcasting LIVE at Lelli’s from 6 pm until 8 pm.  There will be a cocktail reception with hors’ devours and raffles for a $25 entry fee.   This will include 1 cocktail  and hors devours.

 On September 26th and 27th, Lelli’s invites you to a formal, black-tie extravaganza featuring and incredible seven course dining experience, with wine paired with each course.   There will be live entertainment provided by vocalist Matthew Duncan and accompanied on the piano by Rick Haines, Manager/Maître’d.  A dance floor will be in the lounge area for those who care to “cut a rug”.  The all inclusive price for this formal evening out with dinner, dancing and entertainment is $125 per person.
