Acme to stay open this winter? posted on September 16, 2007
The Acme has a sign up on their front door that says they will be open all winter. How can that be? I've been reading all about the plans to tear it down to build a new one in time for next summer. Have the plans changed? Don't tell me their going to tear it down in the Spring and then have the new one built before summer begins!

Sidewalk Cafes Banned in Ship Bottom posted on September 9, 2007
This from the Atlantic City Press - July 13, 2007. Was wondering if the mayor had since relented.
Here is the article -copied & pasted:
Sidewalk cafes are “honky tonk?”
The dictionary definition for “honky tonk” is “cheap, disreputable.” Is that what Paris' sidewalk cafes are? Or New York's? That's not how such alfresco dining is usually described. Maybe it's a good thing Ship Bottom Mayor William Huelsenbeck isn't the mayor of those cities.
Of such crass commercialization on Long Beach Island, the mayor says, “that's not LBI.”
Huelsenbeck has ordered Ship Bottom code inspectors to vigorously enforce a long-standing law that prohibits displays or seating in front of the borough's businesses. “For every business owner who complains about the ordinance, I have more residents who ... say Ship Bottom is starting to look like Coney Island or Myrtle Beach, and they don't want that,” the mayor said.
Certainly, some outdoor displays or restaurant seating could be public-safety problems. Sidewalks shouldn't be blocked. Some, we suppose, could even be too “honky tonk” for Ship Bottom.
But zero tolerance is foolish in this and all things. And Huelsenbeck's crackdown has meant that Jackie Braddock has been forced to remove the brand-new iron tables, chairs and umbrellas that she had placed outside her Ravioli & More restaurant on Long Beach Boulevard.
Braddock says that when the outside seating is in place, there is still 28 feet between the tables and the curb, certainly enough room for people to pass by on the sidewalk. And what's “honky tonk” about it? “I think if it's not impeding sidewalks and it's attractive, then they need to let businesses do that,” Braddock said.
She's right — and she says 250 of her customers have signed a petition saying the outdoor seating was nice.
Eating outside is fun. And the way Braddock was serving people in front of her store doesn't sound cheap or disreputable to us.
Ship Bottom needs to take another look at this ordinance banning outdoor seating and displays. In the meantime, Braddock should be allowed to put her tables back outside.
Huelsenbeck says that every summer “we have someone pushing the envelope” regarding outdoor displays or seating. We don't doubt it. And virtually every summer, some city official in a shore town overreacts, which is what Huelsenbeck seems to be doing.

Their Italian/Seafood menu looks good, but how expensive is this place? They don't list the prices on their online menu. Is it good, is it worth it?
