Week @ Acme 1/5




Greetings from Carrboro,


There’s nothing quite like a looming apocalypse to quash ambitious New Year’s resolutions. I’m not sure if this end-of-days involves volcanoes, flaming meteors and general geological mayhem or if this is the type where the chosen get whooshed naked to paradise leaving the rest of the clothed masses to feel rather ambivalent about global warming and the federal debt and all the time we spent in Sunday school. Either way, resolving to bike to work twice a week seems rather pointless. As does finally cleaning out the attic. But, on the good side, heroically trying every flavor of Ben and Jerry’s would be eminently doable. Hey. Who knew that apocalyptic determinism had its upside?

The way we see it at Acme, this whole end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it thing has to be good for business. Has to. Nobody’s bucket list features “Lean Cuisine Salisbury Steak.” No-body. Or “that thing swathed in plastic wrap in the back corner of the freezer.” Please. Putting off delicious is never, ever a good idea. Especially now. Hello? The clock is ticking. So, to that end, we’ve made our New Year’s resolution to be better than ever. To be delicious squared. Just for you. Because if a biscuit and gravy won’t save your soul, what will? Oh, that’s right. I forgot. Macaroni and cheese. Hallelujah.

Pan-Seared Sea Bass. Steak Frites. Braised Wild Boar and Venison. Fried Oysters. Lobster and Monkfish Pot Pie. Arugula, Grapefruit and Avocado Salad. Dayboat Scallops.  Shrimp and Mahi Mahi Jambalaya. Pecan Crusted Fried Chicken. Cane Creek Cheeseburgers. Smoked Wahoo and Local Goat Cheese. Pan Seared Duck with Wild Pear Chutney. Coconut Pound Cake with Fresh Tangerine Sauce. Calamari. Forever Roasted Pig. Wild Salmon. Crab Cakes.

Acme. Almost heaven. Definitely Carrboro.

Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The Staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
