An old reclaimed factory with graffiti walls and exposed ductwork sets the tone for a trendy, eclectic dining experience at Acorn. Upon your arrival, a friendly, knowledgeable waiter will greet your party, seating you at a comfortable chair with marble tabletops.
The menu is contemporary, moderately priced American cuisine with a family-friendly format and elegantly presented dishes. A popular lunch choice is the mushroom risotto with chanterelles, wild maitakes, and sherry gastrique. A larger dish that is perfect to share is the highly praised oak-grilled half chicken with gruyere bread pudding, carrots, Isabelle farms cauliflower, and wild mushroom gravy-whipped potatoes. One of the owners, Bryan Dayton, is a master of cocktails, artisan wines, and handpicked craft beers, which he will gladly pair with each dish.
Acorn is open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays.
