It was Acme Grill before and it's Acme now. But nothing is the same. A long mirror backed bar with adjacent counter seating and back wood cafe tables along with Richard Prince artwork and black leather banquettes take up the first floor dining room. The menu by Exec Chef is Mads Refslund (a founding partner in Copenhagen's famed Noma restaurant) is divided into raw, cooked, soil, sea and land sections. Translation? It's a mix of traditional bistro food (steak frites, oysters, etc.) and Danish goods like house cured salmon, beer based clam and barley soup, pickled veggies and duck served in a jar and desserts like home made Danish donuts. Move downstairs for a loungey experience and continue imbibing in Acme's curious cocktail like the Graffiti Green made with gin, basil and bell peppers.
