Auburn

Born in Alabama and raised in San Antonio, TX, David Bancroft’s passion for food began at an early age. Bancroft grew up eating some of the best cuisine the South has to offer, including Alabama’s famous white sauce BBQ and bacon collard greens, along with Texas’ crave-worthy beef brisket and breakfast tacos. Bancroft parlayed his love of food into a passion for cooking, inspired by his family’s approach to home-style dining. Bancroft spent time on the Alabama family farm hunting and fishing with his grandfather and learning how to smoke brisket and barbecue, while developing a deep appreciation and care for the meat and its procurement process. After finishing high school, Bancroft returned to his Alabama roots to attend Auburn University, where Bancroft served as the kitchen steward for his fraternity and later went on to serve as the head chef at Amsterdam Café in Auburn during his senior year. Feeling confident in his experiences and looking for a way to utilize his self-taught skills as a farmer, forager and chef, Bancroft opened Acre restaurant with his wife, Christin in August 2013.
