Acme Chophouse To Close at the End of the Year
The Chronicle's Michael Bauer reported on his blog last night that Acme Chophouse (24 Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park) is closing December 31. Rumors have been swirling for at least a year about the upscale steakhouse that emphasizes sustainable sourcing. Managing chef-partner Traci Des Jardins cited the difficulty of filling 330 seats during baseball's off season. Baseball fans (and others) will still be able to get their food and drink on at the AT&T Park anchor restaurant, thanks to a more casual concept that will replace Acme sometime next year. Acme head chef Thom Fox will stay on for the new venture -- earlier, he tweeted to Edible San Francisco that "We will still keep true to all things that we believe. Source, cook & serve good, clean & just food."
The upscale steakhouse is being axed -- er, cleavered.
