Greetings from Carrboro,
Snow, shmow. Whether a lot or a little, Acme will be open. All weekend long. Even if you share with us that decidedly southern genetic defect to purchase large quantities of sliced bread and gallons of milk at the mere mention of icy precipitation, you shouldn’t really want to eat any of it. Because, in truth, you lack the proper alchemical training. Trust me.
That’s where we come in. Our experienced team of culinary alchemists are able to turn our harebrained purchases into something quite different. Mixed correctly and in proper proportion, we are able to coax bread and milk into perfect braised short ribs. And corn pudding. And pan-seared parrot fish. And cornbread. And bourbon. Duh. All sorts of things. It’s all about technique. And magic dust.
So do the right thing. Put down that sad loaf. Carrboro is calling.
Wild game pot pie. Winter gumbo with house-cured bacon, shrimp, scallops, and smoked halibut. Acme steak burger! Winter-spiced January sangria. Flash-fried flounder. Brinkley Farm’s Lacinato kale salad. Grilled New York Strip. Bourbon-glazed Elysian Field Farm carrots. Pecan-crusted fried chicken. Bacon, caramelized apple, and brie handpie. Blackened salmon. Roasted bone marrow. Pan-seared duck breast. Sticky persimmon pudding.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
