Cuisine: American, Seafood, Southern
Acre is an example of a great restaurant that serves up an awesome signature steak - a grilled angus ribeye served with garlicky rosemary 'crushed' potatoes in a red wine reduction. Y-U-M. The menu changes frequently based on what's available - both in terms of the locally produced foods and the fresh seafood, flown in daily. This is the restaurant where Memphians will find the most unusual combination of ingredients, bar none. For example, the braised short rib entree is paired with aligot potatoes, chanterelle mushrooms and a black garlic glaze. Foodies will delight in perusing the offerings, while those with less adventuresome or less experienced palates will be questioning the servers. A bar menu offers simpler fare and smaller bites, plus fantastic people watching.

Romantic Dining, Steakhouses, Outdoor Dining: "A gorgeous dining patio, with candles tucked into recesses of the stone walls, is open when the weather is fine, and is definitely a romantic setting."
Best for Romantic Dining Because: Acre offers couples an upscale night of romance, with sleek interiors and full (but not crowded) dining spaces.
Best for Steakhouses Because: We think the chefs at Acre are genius - and their take on a good cut of beef is always a treat.
Best for Outdoor Dining Because: Acre's patio is probably the prettiest - and certainly one of the quietest - in town, so it's perfect for a romantic evening.
