Acme is glad to welcome parties for up to 20 guests seven nights a week. We have a semi-private room which can be rented for the evening or reserved for a part of the evening. For parties of 11 or more people we offer a three course limited menu including dessert. Depending on the date and time of the party, a room rental fee may be charged.
In addition, the entire restaurant can be rented outright for rehearsal dinners, corporate functions and other larger parties. For such events our chef and general manager will work closely with guests to craft a menu and service plan which exactly suit their wishes.
- The Restaurant Writes...
The ovens are turned on early. Six o'clock most days. Earlier on Sunday. Within an hour, bread is rising, apples are being sliced. Pecan pies are pulled hot from the oven and left to cool. Ice cream churns in the machine. Cups of coffee steam on the prep table, the baker's cup marked with chocolaty fingerprints.
By midmorning, pork shoulder, rubbed with spices the day before, is slowly smoked. And white buckets are filled with sliced onions. Corn is shucked. The stock that cooked all night is taken off the stove and strained. Bags of fresh shrimp are delivered in old grocery store bags.
The waiters arrive in groups, shirts and ties on hangers. By then, every burner in the kitchen is being used. Herbs are chopped. Scallops cleaned. Ovens at 500 degrees. All sauces are checked. Bartenders polish their shakers. Silverware is rolled and every surface is wiped down. Music. Lights. Doors are opened.
Dinnertime. At Acme. Seven nights a week. Local never tasted so damn good.
