The owners of the Hornet have already had success building a neighborhood spot on Broadway. Now they've done 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. Neighborhood families enjoy both the patio and the 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.
