What’s all the fuss about ACME? The facade is exactly the same as it was during it’s many years as an “Authentic Southern and Cajun Cookin” bar and grill… But the interior has been completely redone, well, to look old. Danish chef Mads Refslund brings a modern, and somewhat revolutionary cuisine to the spot, not disappointing his legacy of being an apprentice of the world-renowned restaurant Noma in Copenhagen.
The doorman with the list at the door is obviously intimidating to passers by and completely discourages walk-ins. The place has a super buzzed scene, but once you score a resie (really simple, try opentable in advance), and after you pass the lizard handles on its shiny red doors, service is friendly, the mixologist kind, and the atmosphere quite welcoming, emulating a Parisian café.
Downstairs is a funky basement bar, for aperitifs or an après-dinner cocktail. Perfect place if you want a hip vibe, with innovative and interesting dishes.
