Hearty Sharing Plates: Acme is brought to us by Baked’s Mohamed Zahir, who is honoring his ancestral roots with this Middle Eastern spot. Priding itself on combining “contemporary plating with traditional dining fare,” Acme serves mezze plates for sharing and mains with elegant presentations.
Look & Feel: The restaurant takes up a space in Soho, which coincidentally has proved a popular spot through the years for Middle Eastern concepts (Olive and Maison Libanaise are in the area, while Bedu is a few steps down on Gough Street). The cozy joint has plenty of natural lighting thanks to a window, while the interiors feature beige tones, inspired by the desert landscape of the Middle East.
On the Menu: Expect the likes of portobello shawarma with harissa and tahini sauce, corn falafel with saffron aioli, spiced lamb chops, and lobster with lemon sumac cream and lardo.
Great For: Cravings of hearty, flavorsome dishes to start off the day (Due to Covid-19 restrictions at the time of publication, the restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch.)
