Here is a look inside the latest incarnation of Jon Neidich and Jean-Marc Houmard's Acme, which relaunched this week as a "contemporary bistro." Now the restaurant is offering a French and Italian-inspired menu from new chef Brian Loiacono. While the essential design of the room remains largely unchanged, the artwork is all new and focuses on local artists and a brighter color palate. Artist featured include Chuck Close, Robert Longo, Jean-Kallina, and Julian Schnabel. The team from MP Shift worked on the new branding for Acme — that's the crew that created the space at Tilda All Day. If you happen to stop by Acme 2.1 let us know what you think.
