Hearty. Salty. Sweet. Sour. Full of nuance, color and texture, the Alabama Butcher’s Board at Acre restaurant in Auburn is Alabama on a plate, or rather, on a piece of Alabama wood.
In addition to all that, the restaurant’s most popular charcuterie board showcases the talents of chef and owner David Bancroft.
The James Beard Award semifinalist has built a reputation on sustainability and paying homage to the farmers and makers in the state.
In-house cured meats, house-made pickles, local cheeses and fermented fruits are among the standouts that are served on a piece of oak that Bancroft chopped down with his grandpa.
