Everyone knows you’re supposed to give something up after Mardi Gras, but in the case of ACME Bar & Grill, it looks like they’re giving up period. EV Grieve hears from someone there that Noho’s New Orleans fixture has quietly closed (“we've had our run and we're done”), and Fork in the Road follows up and hears the same: "We were here too long and there just wasn't enough business.” Acme opened in 1986 and was most recently in the news when a deal with Michael Herman (and potentially Paul Sevigny) didn’t pan out and Herman opened Bowery Beef instead. Hurricane seekers are hereby redirected to Great Jones Café. For iced chicory coffee (from Blue Bottle!), Bowery Beef is the place to go.
