Upscale food on white tablecloths, but with an atmosphere that isn't uppity, and doesn't require diners to dress for dinner. That's the concept behind Acme F&B.
The newest venture from Good 2 Go Taco's Colleen O'Hare and Jeana Johnson (the pair also serve as the culinary team for Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House, but are less visible there due to the layout) and their business partners Brooke Humphries and Brianna Larson of Barcadia is slated to debut its laid-back, seasonal, sustainable, and local when possible cuisine tomorrow, June 1.
Not only do sample dishes include grilled asparagus with roasted beet mimosa salad, chicken and dumplings with rainbow chard gnocchi, and braised rabbit with three onion risotto jus, but the restaurant touts the first "whole animal allocation program" in Texas. Press materials offer details:
This means that the menu will change throughout the evening with regards to the proteins. While a steak is being offered at one point, sweetbreads could be offered at another. O’Hare and Johnson plan to use the finer cuts of meat for ACME F & B, while other cuts such as ground beef or pork will be sent over to Good To Go Taco, Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burgers, their other restaurant, making this a true “farmer-friendly” concept.
While O'Hare and Johnson promise the "unexpected twists" on comfort food that fans of their cooking already give hearty praise, Humphries and Larson will head up a bar program featuring 24 beers on tap, 26 wines by the glass and 12 specialty cocktails.
