Calling all beef lovers: Good 2 Go Taco owners Colleen O’Hare and Jeana Johnson and Barcadia owners Brooke Humphries and Brianna Larson have collaborated on a new concept at McKinney and Monticello. Acme F&B offers the first “whole animal allocation program” of its kind in Texas, which means the protein on Acme’s menu changes throughout the evening (from steak to sweetbreads, for example), and cuts from the same animal are shared with O’Hare and Johnson’s other restaurants, Good 2 Go Taco and Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burgers. Along with ethical-meat practices, Acme is devoted to serving seasonal, local and sustainable food. Try grilled asparagus with roasted beet mimosa salad, braised rabbit with three onion risotto jus or chicken and dumplings with rainbow chard gnocchi and summer chilled green gazpacho, served in a suitably rustic decor. Acme F&B also offers up two bars with more than 26 wines by the glass, 24 beers on tap and 12 specialty cocktails — try Summer Crush with Tito’s, blackberries and basil, or the Blueberry Lemon Cooler with Limoncello, blueberries, mint and soda. 4900 McKinney Ave., 214.443.0003; acmefandb.com.
