Acme isn’t the only downtown endeavor that’s revamping and/or reopening: Jeffrey’s Grocery has reopened as more of a dining room and bar than a grocery; Feast had a look at the new dinner menu, and Eater had more details. The latter site also hears rumors that Michael White has acquired the space next to Osteria Morini for a possible expansion. Meanwhile, EV Grieve notices that the old Carteles space will soon reopen as Bittermens General Store (selling cocktail equipment) and Amor Y Amargo, a “bitters tasting room” serving stirred bitter cocktails, housemade vermouth, and tapas.

Eater reports that Gallery Bar is reopening after its brush with the law, and still more exciting, Ryan Maguire’s Ale House has reopened in the financial district a year after it was felled by fire. Tribeca Citizen reports that Columbine has reopened next door and Hideaway is planning to reopen this month after a fireof its own. And finally — just a slight reboot, but Fork in the Road reports that Harry’s Steak has hired acclaimed English mixologist Sean Muldoon to redo its cocktail program.

Upward and onward, all!
