Andrew Longres, chef and owner of the Parkville restaurant Acre, is unleashing two new chef experiences this summer. Acre first opened in August 2022 and is known for its dry-aged steak program and impeccable Midwestern hospitality. Longres hopes to continue the trend with an intimate Counter Hearth Experience and Saturday afternoon cooking class.

Acre’s open kitchen highlights their oft-used hearth, where kitchen staff roasts or grills the restaurant’s signature entrées. Four guests per seating can experience a five-course prix fixe tasting menu at a high-top table that boasts the room’s best view of the wood-fired hearth. Acre offers this intimate experience Tuesday through Saturday, with two seatings per night.
