About

ACME is now open after undergoing a culinary transformation led by new executive chef and partner Brian Loiacono. Re-introducing ACME as a contemporary bistro, Loiacono combines his Italian-American upbringing with his classic French training to create a seasonal neighborhood restaurant that showcases a variety of flavors and techniques, yet is quintessentially New York. Chef Brian Loiacono's menu reflects his Italian heritage and years working with chef Daniel Boulud, most recently at db Bistro Moderne.

I always have an amazing experience every time I dine at Acme. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The sommelier, Nicole, is extremely knowledgeable and really helped guide our entire dinner experience with great recommendations to go with our food. Our server Latina was very attentive and friendly . I definitely would recommend coming to Acme for the great service and fantastic overall food and wine experience. Will definitely be coming back soon.

Went for a girls get together for 8 people - we had a perfect round table. Atmosphere very New York sexy. Tables not too close together so felt private and also perfect level of noise for talking - unusual for New York! Star dishes included Caesar salad, ricotta, fried tomatoes, chicken under a brick, steak and broccolini. They also make a great espresso martini. Service couldn't have been better - I'll be back!

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Had the Beef Tartar and Fettucine with Short Ribs. Beef Tartar had a very distinct flavor which wasn't too dominant. Very subtle and left enough room for the beef flavor. The fettuccine were perfectly al-dente, the short rib sauce to die for. Will come back soon!

Our waiter barely came to the table. We had to go to the bar for drinks and our table was the least desirable. I would come back but would sit at the bar.

I expected more. I spent my bday last year and I loved it... That's why I wanted to come back. But the experience was very disappointing! The host was not nice, the waiters treated us poorly and on top of everything we weren't allowed to go downstairs! So sad...

Our main course was delayed by over an hour and neither the service staff nor the management seemed concerned or gave a damn. Had to send the scallops back when they eventually came because they were too salty to eat. When the bill was presented we were told off-handishly that they took off two appetizers to make up for the problems, in an attempt to placate us. Sad actually, because the appetizers were quite delicious.

Great atmosphere and people watching - We made a 10:30pm reservation so we could head downstairs after drinks and apps. The reservation, however, does not guarantee you will be allowed downstairs... So not great on the customer experience end.

Made us wait an hour for our table. Wait staff and hosts were extremely rude to us for asking to not sit right at the front door in a packed restaurant. The food was good but won't be back

Had a fantastic duck over chickpea puree. Paired wonderfully with the Italian red. Ambiance is fantastic. Good, muted lighting, perfect acoustics, carefully prepared food, and, if you make a reservation for two, you may get a prime booth seat.

We were offered a nice corner table but later realized how cramped their seating is. If anyone set next to,me, we would be bumping elbows with other diners. Tables are ridiculously cramped. Service is warm and friendly. Drinks are very strong and for serious drinkers. Mojito was not well done, watery and not balanced. Portions are very small and we are not big eaters. Asparagus was delicious. Artichokes were good. Broccolini were just ok. Mushroom risotto was good but also very small. We skipped dessert as we felt the host kept looking at all the tables, checking who is finishing dinner. We felt rushed for that reason. We also didn't like the cramped seating.

Very nice place -- quiet enough to really talk, and very close to Public Theater. We went for lunch before matinee. Food was excellent and done the way we asked but very expensive for Saturday lunch ($145 for 4 entrees, 2 cocktails, and extra fries...)
However, I'd recommend Acme. Lovely, attentive staff who didn't make us feel rushed out, comfortable space between tables, no noise clanging off hard surfaces (a la Smith...)
