"An okay place to eat" 8/16/2005

For over fifteen years Acme's motto has been "an okay place to eat" but that really isn't a fair appraisal. It might not be a three star restaurant but if you have a craving for good old Southern style cooking Acme is the place to go when you're downtown. How can you pass up great catfish salad or if you're looking for something a bit more substantial you can get some ribs with tasty meat falling off the bones. Sweet potato fries and some collard greens are a must for me when I eat there and I would suggest them to you too. If you live between Canal and 14th street from fifth to A they even deliver so why would you get bad pizza? Check out their menu here: more

Southern cooking, Cajun cuisine 7/12/2005

If you're down for a little something different from all of the other restaurants in the SoHO area, point your attention towards the ACME Bar and Grill. I went there on a Friday night, had no problem getting a table and felt immersed in the overall vibe of the venue. The waiters can be a bit slow for a bar/restaurant that isn't that large, but the food is well worth it. From the Po' Boy sandwiches to the gumbo and jambalaya, you won't be disappointed. The back of the restaurant serves as a bar area and there is a wide selection of beers at your disposal. One thing you'll notice while you eat is that the "ledge" bordering the walls of the restaurant are adorned with tons of different hot sauses and spices from all over the world. The vibe is pretty decent, though if you are picky about having a quiet dinner alone with someone, beware of the people in other tables sitting about a foot away from you as they tables are grouped so tightly together. This is definitely a place I recommend if you're hanging out with a group of friends. And be sure to check this place out during the weekend from 10-4, as there is a brunch special, including open bar. more

  • The Scene
    Chili-pepper lights and bright-colored hot sauce bottles line the walls in standard urban-roadhouse decor, but the East Village crowd, relaxing in ample booths and tables, makes this restaurant look more like a coffee shop. Beer is the choice beverage in the bar area, but the three-rum hurricanes, tasting more of citrus fruit than sugary syrup, provide a fresh take on the tall New Orleans cocktail.

    The Food
    Nothing makes for better bar snacks than this down-home Southern menu. Whet your appetite with the whole-kernel corn bread, then wash down some hush puppies with a pint of Turbo Dog, a malty microbrew imported from Louisiana. The crispy catfish fingers appetizer makes a big meal in itself. Calorific sides dishes like mac and cheese and black-eyed peas come in good-sized portions. Cajun-style entrees, from po' boys to jambalaya, are geared toward extra-large appetites.
