    No not yet. I spoke to Wally's Sous Chef the other day and he told me it would likely be another 60 - 90 days.

      They totally gutted and renovated an old house on South Perkins. It looks really great from the street. Can't wait to try it.

        Just an update...

        They are installing kitchen equipment this week and hope to be up and running by the middle of February at the latest.

        Should be a great addition to the Memphis culinary scene

          The menu is up -- that's a good sign for them actually opening soon.

            Acre opened this week and did not disappoint. They have achieved a comfortable yet elegant environment - the interior space includes white pine floors, stone, lofted ceilings, beautiful views, custom made leather furniture and fine linens. The exterior patio is heavily landscaped creating a private space that invites you to linger over cocktails. The food focuses on the quality of the ingredients with both modern and classic preparations. Of the items our table ordered, we loved the pea soup with Parmesan flan, the mushroom agnolotti, the skate wing and the pork. A wonderful addition to Memphis dining.

          I went a few weeks ago and it was great. The service was excellent, without the snootiness that I hated about Wally Joe. The food was excellent. I can't wait to go back. A friend who was with me went back more recently and said everything was just as good.

            I ate lunch there a couple of weeks ago and Wally Joe was walking around the dining room refilling diners' water glasses himself. I don't think I've ever seen a chef/owner do that in my life. I was impressed.
