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 (formerly executive chef at Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne) combines his classic French training with his Italian-American upbringing to create a seasonal neighborhood restaurant that showcases a variety of flavors and techniques, yet is quintessentially New York.

Beverage director Nicole Hakli has joined the ACME team to helm the restaurant’s already noteworthy wine program. A veteran of The Nomad and Eleven Madison Park, Hakli is bolstering a diverse, accessible selection of restrained and balanced classic Old World styles, bringing her fresh perspective to ACME’s inventory. Hakli is building the list to include robust offerings in the under-$60 range, countered by an extensive array from coveted Burgundian producers such as Bruno Clair, Dujac, and Domaine Leflaive as well as Barolos like Mascarello and Giacosa in the restaurant’s new consignment program. ACME's wine list is a Wine Spectator Award Winning List since 2017.

Delivery

Downstairs

Below the restaurant, a storied and time-worn rock ‘n’ roll club has been renovated into a cocktail bar, ideal for pre-dinner drinks, large-party dining, and private events. Our beverage manager Dev Johnson has assembled an extensive collection of small production spirits and modern variations on classic cocktails. In addition to the bar program, ACME Downstairs offers a menu which includes a number of dishes from the restaurant as well as more casual small-plate options.

Events

{ Private Events }

ACME can host a variety of private events in both the ground-floor restaurant and the downstairs lounge. Take the ACME Virtual Tours below.

 

 

For a private seated dinner, the restaurant can accommodate up to 100 guests, the downstairs can accommodate up to 70 guests. For a cocktail reception, each space can accommodate up to 120 guests.

 

Events at ACME typically take the format of a cocktail reception with passed canapés, a seated dinner served family style, or a combination of the two. Buyout packages feature a beverage offering which includes premium open bar, specialty cocktails, wine, and beer.

 

For more information, please contact our events coordinator at events@acmenyc.com.

{ Large Party Dining }

ACME is able to accommodate parties of up to 32 guests in the downstairs lounge, in a non-private setting. We have selected Chef Loiacono's signature dishes and created several prix fixe options, which are served family-style. Wine pairings can be provided upon request.
