MIDTOWN - The threesome behind The Federal and Phuc Yea! - Alejandro Ortiz, Aniece Meinhold and Cesar Zapata - are set to open an artisanal bakery and cafe, ACME Bakery and Coffee, in Midtown. "More reminiscent of an ‘old time general store’ counter than the conventional refrigerated display", ACME will serve up cakes, pastries, tarts, home-made candies and breads with such early items including pecan sticky-buns, meyer-lemon tarts and bundt cakes.

CRITICS - New Times' veteran, full-time restaurant critic Lee Klein has been shown the door in favor of a "corps of folks" - Emily Codik, Lesley Elliot, Zack Fagenson, and Bill Citara.

BRICKELL - Earlier in the week, a sign was discovered posted throughout NFL linebacker Jonathan Vilma's barbecue joint, Brother Jimmy's, banning NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell from dining at the restaurant, reading "DO NOT SERVE THIS MAN".
