"New" Hugo's- Portland

I have a reservation for next Friday at Hugo's. My finance and I have been wanting to check it out for over a year and we now have a big event to celebrate. I knew they had closed for "spring break" but didn't know until today that they were opening with a new concept. Has anyone been since it re-opened? Even if you haven't, do you know what is new? I would hate to have really high expectations for what we THOUGHT was Hugo's but learn that it is totally different now. Any experience or information would be greatly appreciated.

    someone went and reviewed it on their site, i've seen them post on chowhound as well but don't remember their username here. it's at:
    http://blog.typeadiversions.com/

    according to what i read elsewhere, you can order invididual things instead of only having options to choose from one of the tasting menus...you can order anything anywhere, instead of just at the bar.

    please pass along your thoughts; i've got reservations for june.

      There's also a report on the rejuvenated Hugo's on the Chow Maine website:
