Brian Malarkey's Green Acre Restaurant Review

: Executive chef and TV personality Brian Malarkey has a knack for creating compelling spaces in which to enjoy his cuisine, and Green Acre is one example. Located on Campus Pointe, it’s the spot for breakfast and lunch with an outdoor dining area jazzed up by flourishing gardens, fire pits, and games like ping pong and cornhole. The interior has cozy booths, a private glass box dining room, a bar and a billiards table for more social fun. Early morning hunger pangs are sated with scrambled farm eggs and smoked cheddar on ciabatta, or plump breakfast burritos that can be custom designed. Fresh pressed juices, healthy smoothies and fair trade coffee energize the day. For lunch, salads run the gamut from sweet kale Caesar to steak and blue cheese in buttermilk dressing. Handcrafted brick-oven pizzas feature combinations such as a mushroom medley with truffle oil. Grass-fed-beef chili, burgers, BLTs, lamb gyros and rotisserie chicken round out the menu. There's a grab-n-go healthy market as well. Happy hours run Thursday and Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
