Acova

The owners of the Hornet have already had success building a neighborhood spot on Broadway. Now they’re hoping to do the same at Acova, which opened in the spring of 2018 in the space that was Patsy’s for almost 100 years. Extensive renovations have resulted in a contemporary, whimsical and welcoming restaurant, with ostrich heads painted on exposed brick, a host stand made from a repurposed Patsy’s pasta maker, and cool blue pendant lamps. A patio and playground keep neighborhood families happy, as does a bright, breezy bar with garage windows. Look for a familiar mix of casual, globally inspired sandwiches, soups and entrees, with plenty of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options.
