Acme Is Almost Ours to Enjoy Again, But In a Better Outfit

Old-school Acme looked like this for 25 years. Now what?

Grub Street hears that the Acme, Bob Pollack’s former Cajun/Southern institution on Great Jones Street (which, to the anticipation of many, was taken over by Jean-Marc Houmard, Michael Callahan, and Huy Chi Le, the glamorous crew behind Indochine and Kittichai), has their new menu in place and is inviting select guests in this week for tastings. According to a source at the restaurant, they aren’t ready for the legit opening yet, "but we’re getting close."
