so i was out of town for a bit (4months) and I know the restaurants are by the same guy, but I'm confused. Did fate become sens?

the website for fate (go2fate) only talks about sens. is it the same location? what's the sitch?

    Same owner, different restaurants, different locations. Not sure what the deal is with the website.

    905 N 4th St

    705 N. 1st St

      Yeah, that's weird. As far as I know Fate is still open, but its Web site redirects to Sens.

        to compound the confusion, someone on first fridays gave me a flyer for sens and some protracted story about johnny chu not being at sens and him moving a few menu items to sens so they would be available there only, implying some kind of break between johnny and fate. which i thought was odd.

        i know fate wasn't a sole proprietorship and he had partners, so who knows..

        i guess stay tuned??

          Check out Michele Laudig's blog entry on Fate at www.phoenixnewtimes.com. Uh oh.

          Wow...we were thinking of going to Fate this weekend. Sens is on the list too - seems like a better choice at this point.
