The second location of farm to table fast casual restaurant Acre held its grand opening on February 13. The new restaurant is located at 1717 Northwest Blvd.
“We’re excited to begin serving the communities of Fifth By Northwest, Grandview and Upper Arlington,” said Acre founder Todd Mills. “The enthusiasm they’ve shared as we’ve built out the restaurant has been a warm welcome to the neighborhood already.”
The second location will focus on lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Similar to the original location, it will feature a menu of bowls, wraps, salads, tacos and seasonal specialties, as well as house-made sodas, Cafe Brioso coffee and Ohio craft beers and ciders.
The first location of Acre opened in 2014 at 2700 N. High St., on the border of Old North Columbus and Clintonville. The business was originally conceived during founder Todd Mills’ work with local non-profit Local Matters, which aims to teach kids and families what real food is, where it comes from and how it is grown.
As the development director at Local Matters, Mills became familiar with Ohio’s tremendous bounty from growers and artisans, and now aims to share that experience with Acre’s guests.
The restaurant will open for lunch at 10:30 a.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m. for brunch on weekends and will close at 9:00 pm Sunday through Wednesday and 10:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
