When you look at Chef Wally Joe, you may not see an expert on flavorful Southern fare, but after one bite of his food, you'll know that you're in the hands of a master. Chef Joe draws on his Chinese background and experiences growing up in the Mississippi Delta to fuse hearty Southern food with a deft, Asian touches. ACRE combines all the elements of modern fine dining with the comfort of sharing a meal in the home of a good friend - a friend with style. The inventive food uses high quality and locally sourced ingredients makes it a destination for locals and visitors alike. Popular dishes include Koji chicken with charred onion sauce, grilled duck breast with pickled pears and monkfish with sweet potatoes. If you're looking for a unique dining experience, Chef Joe and his partner, Chef Andrew Adams, will roast a whole pig and serve it up with all the fixins' to you and up to eleven of your closest friends. You just have to plan ahead and order ten days in advance.

ACRE pays just as much attention to wine and spirits as it does to its sumtuous food. The restaurant offers a broad list of wines sourced by small, boutique wine producers and limited production wines. Artisan cocktails are crafted with premium liquor and house made syrups and infusions.

The elegant dining room is posh enough for a fabulous date night, and the more casual bar area is perfect for an evening out with the guys or gals. When the weather is nice, dine on the gorgeous outdoor patio.
