Formerly known as Acme Bar & Grill, this old-school standby shortened its name and got a little spruced up with the help of Danish celebrity chef Mads Refslund in 2012. With the upgrade came a cool interior and an even cooler scene. The food is homey, earthy American with a twist (country toast and white asparagus hollandaise, for example), and whether you’re in the mood for a meal or not, it’s also worth coming here for drinks. The downstairs space (which features exposed brick walls and is usually candle-lit) is available for private events.
