Out of the office into the brasserie.
Looking for a table at one of New York’s hottest restaurants on a Friday night? Then you’d better book ahead – after all, dinner is an NYC nightlife fixture and, due to the city’s cramped living conditions, most people prefer to head out with friends to make the most of their weekend. NoHo’s ACME is one of those sizzling and very now destinations. The brainchild of Jean-Marc Houmard and partners (Jon Neidich and Huy Chi Le, partner at Indochine), this metropolitan gem counts among the current favourites of New York’s creative scene – and sure enough: on my first-ever visit to this temple of culinary cool, I find myself seated right next to street style darling and jewellery designer Waris Ahluwalia. Beyond its laid-back brasserie-style interior and the equally laid-back atmosphere, ACME boasts a menu that is a cut or two above the rest.
