10Best Says

Best Restaurants for Spring: Acre's lush patio is one of our favorites in town, thanks to the pretty wooded setting that surrounds the rough-hewn stone walls and smooth slate underfoot. (Ladies can catch a real feel of spring in the charming restroom, which features hand-painted flowers on the walls and a ceiling buzzing with golden bees - all the work of the uber-talented Stephanie Jones). The menu at Acre 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: 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.
