The final season of “Game of Thrones” is set to air on HBO Sunday. But the show will be celebrated in Carrboro with a five-course feast at Acme Food & Beverage Co.
On July 12 and 13 at 8 p.m. there will be two RSVP-only dinners with food inspired by the show. The “Game of Thrones” dinners were held earlier in the year and were such a success that owners decided to stage them again in time for the return of the series.
Courses are named for characters and places in the series and has a paired beverage. The first course, Breakfast at Winterfell, features blackberry preserves on house-baked bread. Lunch at the Crossroads Inn, the second course, is stewed rabbit. Dinner in Dorne, the third course, features fire-roasted leg of lamb with chickpea polenta, roasted peppers and fiery mustard sauce.
The final course, Dessert with the Lady of Winterfell, serves up Sansa’s Lemon Cakes with blueberries and whipped cream.
Costumes are encouraged. Seating at the candlelit table is limited. The cost is $55 per person. Make reservations at 919-929-2263.
Later this weekend is Acme’s 16th annual Acme Tomato Festival, which naturally celebrates one of the stars of summer. The restaurant says it will go through 700 pounds of tomatoes from local farmers that are sold at the Carrboro Farmers Market. The weekend remains a busy time at the restaurant. Reservations are encouraged.
“We’ll slice and dice, simmer and sauté, fry and oven-dry like there’s no tomorrow,” according to its website.
