Acacia Restaurant Relocating to Gallery Row

Posted By on Wed, Dec 29, 2010 at 8:49 AM

Chef Albert Hall is moving Acacia at St. Philip’s from St. Philip’s Plaza at 4340 N. Campbell Ave. to a spot at Gallery Row at 3001 E. Skyline Drive. The new restaurant will feature an exhibition kitchen and closed-circuit television that will allow diners to watch the cooks work.

What hasn't been announced is what will happen to the Marketplace at Acacia, the grab-and-go market that recently added an ultra-organic juice bar.

From the somewhat hilarious press release announcing the move:

The word is they have made room for a chefs table complete with closed circuit TV for viewing the real time musings of a kitchen in action. In addition to the spacious, state of the art production kitchen, Acacia's new digs feature an exhibition kitchen in the dining room with a wood burning rotisserie to further inspire the world class brigade of chefs and culinaire savants. This source believes Hall will use this kitchen to revive his famous Saturday morning cooking classes. His vision, a modern approach to sustainability as well as healthy choices comes to fruition in this latest culinary adventure. Our source reports the mainstay of his larder will contain primarily all natural and organic products. Grass fed beef, all natural poultry, sustainable seafoods and organic produce. These top quality products have never been more available or more affordable, allowing Acacia to offer an excellent value.

Update: Acacia is also changing it's name to Acacia Real Food and Cocktails, and is going in at the old Sur Real spot, according to a press release put out this morning.

Update No. 2: The company that's handling media inquiries just informed me that the Marketplace at Acacia will be closing. Bummer.
