Tom Morales, owner of restaurants The Southern Steak & Oyster and Saffire, as well as catering company 'to the stars' TomKats, has announced plans to open a new restaurant, bar and music venue downtown. According to the Tennessean, the new concept, named The Acme, will be located in the 22,500-square-foot Acme Feed building at the corner of Broadway and First Avenue South. Morales is leading a local investor group in the venture, which has signed a 15-year sublease for the property and plans to make improvements that could cost anywhere from $5 to $7 million. No further details or opening timeline are known, but a press conference is scheduled to take place next week, so do check back for more info.
