Acme Feed & Seed
The brainchild of restaurateur Tom Morales (The Southern Steak & Oyster, Fin & Pearl) and counting country music superstar Alan Jackson among its investors, Acme Feed & Seed – Lower Broadway’s iconic, century-old former seed and farm goods store – has been smash hit since its September 2014 opening. Meaning, lines-out-the-door smash hit. The first floor is an updated take on the classic honky-tonk, offering street-food inspired cuisine, craft beer, and an eclectic array of live music. The second floor features a lounge with seasonally inspired handcrafted cocktails, a menu of shareable dishes and is home to Acme’s underrated sushi bar. The third floor encompasses The Hatchery, the largest one-level private event and music venue on Lower Broadway. When weather cooperates, Acme’s rooftop features an open-air bar with glorious downtown views.
Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner until late night daily. Saturday-Sunday brunch 10am-3pm.
“You’ll find a combination of down-home favorites and globally influenced dishes. In some cases, there’s a compelling meld of the two. It is strange to say, but the Acme Feed and Seed is likely the best place on Lower Broad to get stellar vegetarian fare.”
