old Habitat now Vdara Restaurant

OnDaGo Nov 7, 2008 09:33 AM

The olf Habitat on Queen is openingup as Vdara Restaurant in a couple of weeks. They have snagged one of the Sous Chefs from Spice Room in Yorkville to head the kitchen.

    I seem to recall it being named something else for a very short period of time after Habitat ended, but I can't remember what. Am I crazy?

          Totally new group, none of the old people are involved. They want it to be a place about the food....

            In a nightclub. On Queen West. They also might consider a better name. Vdara is just asking for viagra jokes.
