Acme Chophouse To Be Split to Make Way for Two New Casual Restaurants

Even before the remains of Acme Chophouse are, well, ashes, much less gone cold, comes word of what'll take its place. Turns out the sprawling Acme space (24 Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park) will be chopped into two unequal parts to house separate eateries. In the space along Third Street, owner Traci Des Jardins will install a Mijita Cocina Mexicana, sister to the one in the Ferry Building. The rest of the space will relaunch as Public House, a sort of sports bar with grass-fed burgers, pulled-pork sliders, crab cakes, and a huge selection of beers and cask ales. Acme chef Thom Fox and GM John Epperheimer will stay on for Public House. Acme operating partner Bon Appetit will continue on with Public House, too. Expect prices to be a bit fan-friendlier that Acme's - a Des Jardins spokesperson told us the tab at Public House will be "more in alignment" with sports bar prices. No word on when the build-out is to begin, but -- naturally -- there'll be a mega push to wrap up construction for the Giants first pitch at AT&T Park on April 9.
