A few weeks ago LivingSocial or Groupon or one of those sites ran a deal for Acme, a restaurant in Carrboro. Acme is a consistently solid establishment: I have never had a mind-blowing meal here but I have also never been disappointed. On this particular summer Friday Acme once again did not fail: we had a solid meal with solid service and we left satisfied.
We started with a great, summery appetizer of heirloom tomatoes and house made mozzarella. This was a perfect dish y’all, I could have eaten it for the main course. The tomatoes were perfect and juicy and the mozzarella was mild and creamy. The dish was garnished with deviled eggs and a tasty basil pesto which we sopped up with the bread. Summer is awesome. Apologies for the dark photos–didn’t want to use the flash.
For the main course Jon got a steak with garlic mashed potatoes, all well done. I had crab cakes with a succotash of kale, butternut squash, corn and tomatoes. Really tasty all around.
We–or rather I since Jon isn’t a dessert person, sigh–ended with a brownie sundae. Impossible to mess up, really.
Acme is a great place to go for a reliable good, fairly upscale meal. A Carrboro institution one might say. Y’all should check it out if you haven’t!
