Owner Nick Scotto will be firing up an expanded menu in his new restaurant.
When Acme market closed in February 2011, Nick Scotto says he was a bit worried. And for good reason.

That means a lot.” Taking stock of the last 34 years, Scotto says that because of his dedicated patrons, he’s decided to open another…
