Acacia Opens in Its New Spot

Posted By on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 9:00 AM

Acacia Real Food and Cocktails - the new incarnation of Acacia at St. Philip's - opens tonight at its new home in Gallery Row at 3001 E. Skyline Drive. It will occupy the space formerly held by Sur Real.

Chef Albert Hall didn’t announce the move until the last week in December, and now, a mere two weeks later, he’s opening the new spot. That's lightning fast, especially considering the original location didn't close until after dinner last night.

It sounds like the new Acacia is going to be something else. A closed circuit television system will allow diners to watch the kitchen crew work, and there’s been word that the dining room will feature an exhibition kitchen and a wood-burning rotisserie. We’re not sure if those details are in place yet, but they should make for a unique dining experience when they are.

An employee tells us the new location opens at 5 p.m., today, Friday, Jan. 14.
