9 Grand Jones Street (Near Lafayette Street)
(212) 203 2121/

Two of the four owners of Acme have been running downtown-scene restaurants for two decades (most notably
­Indochine and BondSt.)  They are proficient at creating the most earthy dining experience with finesse and hype.
There are even giant cherry blossoms propped at the entrance. The bar is set off by a long mirror-backed wall of
glimmering liquor bottles. The weathered roadhouse tabletops of the old Acme Bar & Grill have been replaced with
elegant Parisian-style café tables.The old divvied-up bar and dining-room has been hollowed into a large hall. Like
the waiters, the ­mixologists at the bar are dressed like members of an eighties rock band.The room is outfitted
with downtown art (Playboy bunny–inspired skulls by Richard Prince and a neon sculpture by Hanna Liden.)
The main draw and star at Acme is renowned Danish chef, Mads Refslund.

Since 1913, when Woodrow Wilson was president, old and new friends come back regularly. Some of them every day for some

The Oyster Bar & Restaurant with its high, vaulted ceiling and the architectural grandness of an age gone by, has an ambiance now
that makes it different from any other restaurant in the world, and since people enjoy our cuisine, they come back again and again.
