Acacia Offers Three Courses on the Cheap for Early Eaters

Posted By on Fri, Aug 7, 2015 at 11:40 AM

Although I've already rounded up some of my favorite spots to drop in for happy hour downtown, those definitely aren't the only spots in Tucson where you can enjoy some evening eats on the cheap. Through the end of August, Acacia Real Food & Cocktails is serving up a Sunset Menu every day that will include a three course meal for $30 plus tax and gratuity.

Here's what's on the menu for August:

Sunset Menu (choose one from each course)

Course one
-Onion soup gratinée
-Bermuda and sweet white onion, leeks, beef and chicken broth, crouton, Swiss and parmesan
-Summer field greens, artichoke, tomato, carrot, roasted corn, cured olives, feta, toasted pepitas and an herbaceous vinaigrette

Course two
-Bronzed Scottish salmon with braised fennel risotto, braised spinach, balsamic grilled asparagus, olive oil poached baby plum tomatoes and dijon-honey mustard
-Top Knot Farms pan roasted chicken with mushroom jus, garden harvest vegetables and red potato mash with horseradish
-Roasted garlic custard with fennel risotto, crisp scallion polenta cake, balsamic grilled asparagus, sweet peppers, zucchini, Portabella and garden harvest vegetables

Course three
-Key lime pie
-Dark chocolate decadence with bumbleberry coulis

You can take advantage of this end of summer special by heading into the restaurant, located at 3001 E. Skyline Drive, any day of the week from 4 until 6 p.m. The restaurant also serves happy hour daily from 4 until 7 p.m. For reservations and more information, visit the Acacia website.
