Week @ Acme 2/16
Greetings from Carrboro,
Internships are nothing new in restaurants. You’ve seen Ratatouille, right? Nowadays, all the cool people say stage (pronounced staj) to make their apprenticeships sound fancy. Face it: there’s nothing quite like a French-sounding word to make the culinary world genuflect. And, honestly, what would you choose to order from a restaurant menu – “paté” or “cold potted organ meat spread?” Exactly.
But what is new is having an intern from Copenhagen. And not Copenhagen, NY. Uh-uh. The one in Denmark. With all the bicycles. Christina Larson has been working at Acme for a couple of months now, getting her head around Southern food, but tonight she’s going back to her roots and offering lucky diners the chance to taste a real Danish feast. Gravlax and pork belly and rye bread are just the beginning. Oh, it’ll be delicious.
There’s only so much. And only tonight. Reservations are definitely suggested, and Acme will also be serving our regular menu all night long.
And did I mention Shad Roe? The first true sign of Spring comes to Acme. Pan-fried with cheese grits and a brown butter-caper-and lemon pan sauce. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does. Food is good.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
