Acme-Indochine owners aiming to take over Lucky Cheng's space
We now know who the unnamed applicant is for the Lucky Cheng's space on First Avenue. According to documents on file with CB3, the owners of the new apparent hipspot Acme on Great Jones — Jean-Marc Houmard (co-owner of Indochine) and Jon Neidich (who used to manage the bar at the Standard Hotel's Boom Boom Room) — are aiming to open a still-unnamed restaurant-lounge.
Per CB3 paperwork, the establishment will serve Asian cuisine, with planned hours of noon to 4 a.m. Hui Chi Le, an owner of Indochine and Republic, is the other partner named in the new project.
The applicants will appear before the CB3/SLA licensing committee next Monday at 6:30 p.m.
Lucky Cheng's recently relocated to Times Square.
