Mads Refslund has departed, taking with him his New Nordic menu, and Acme has been reinvented as a French-meets-Italian restaurant helmed by former db Bistro Moderne chef Brian Loiacono. His menu is much simpler than his Scandinavian predecessor’s — food that the fashion set (Acme’s target clientele) can eat nightly. There’s a kale Caesar salad, a butternut-squash steak, squid-ink spaghetti with lobster, and brick chicken.
