[Updated] A look inside the former Acme Bar and Grill

As we first reported back in March, Acme Bar & Grill on 9 Great Jones Place closed ... After three other media outlets confirmed the closing, owner Bob Pollock apparently changed his mind that same day, telling Grub Street "[W]e are not closing for good. We need to renovate this place after 25 years ... the fans of Acme please be patient we'll be back after a few months."

Then! Two months later came word that people behind Indochine and Kittichai were taking over the bi-level space for a fall opening...

Hey, it's fall, right? We have no idea what concept they all decided on... but it won't be anything like Acme, of course... Goggla took a look inside last evening ...

Updated: Eater reports that the new owners went before CB2 last night. Per Eater: "While the pair was certain about hiring a new chef and making revisions to the menu to have a family style restaurant, the board was not impressed that the details had not been completely figured out."

They were told to come back next month.
