THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Acme Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: With one of the world's largest displays of hot sauce lining the room, Acme Bar & Grill looks like it would best fit in with the theme restaurants and flash of Times Square rather than a quiet street in NoHo. Here, it's just you and a pile of greasy ribs. An homage to the famed Acme Oyster & Seafood House in New Orleans, this Southern delta duplicate is pumped with enough bayou to make you wish for another stomach. Expect barbecued St. Louis-style ribs, blackened catfish and all the staples including heaps of jambalaya, gobs of seafood gumbo, and juicy oyster po' boy sandwiches. It's doubtful you'll have room for dessert, but the bread pudding will send you straight to the streets of N'awlins.
