The old Acme was a favorite of ours in the 80's and 90's with it;s honkey tomk decor and walls lined with hot sauce from all over the country. The new Acme is a highly touted Scandanavian restaurant and rightly so. Went for brunch and it was pretty amazing. The bread pudding pancake pictured with diced rhubarb and raw maple syrup was dark and delectable having the consistency of a potato pancake. The baked eggs that my dad ordered arrived in a cast iron skillet with slab bacon. We both had the rhubarb, blood orange and watermelon juice a creative combo. Overall, the food here is inventive, and uber tasty. Not cheap, but worth it.
