Check out Acme, 9 Great Jones St., Btwn Bowery & Lafayette.
Acme is place that has character, and on the weekend you can avoid the nighttime crowd and craze with Acme’s chill brunch. Many brunch spots in the surrounding area are slammed with lines, but Acme manages to have a full, but not overly busy and crowded dining room. It’s easy for your lazy Sunday. And it’s really good. Entrees are great, the cocktails are delicious and unique, the dessert rocks, and they have healthy juice blends too.
The entrees offer more than your basic scrambled eggs. Think baked eggs, pork belly and more. And, the “pancake” is really good. (remember, I’m a pancake girl. I always have to try that.)
And they have healthy juice blends which aren’t common for New York Brunch. Acme is definitely not a place that screams “Health nuts come forth!” but the blends are a smart menu offering. More places should do it.
Acme Juice Blends : Pineapple/Orange/Carrot, Beet/Cherry/Apple, Apple/Celery/Spinach
Fresh Juices: Orange, Grapefruit and Tomato
Do we see a Californication trend possibly emerging….? Can’t hurt. Spring and Summer is almost here.
For Dessert definitely try the Beer & Bread Porridge with Salted Carmel Ice Cream.
And here is how they do Hot Chocolate: Burbon, port, vanilla & milk.
