She is a self-professed Lazy Dog Cafe groupie (she still likes breakfast though), and after much hounding of the restaurant's management staff, she got them to reveal their debut date: April 1st, 2010.
This is a realistic, because what I've seen so far of the progress (since I announced its development in a post in July), can be summed up in three words: none, nada, nothing.
The once proud building that was first built to house Martin Yan's SensAsian, then French 75 Brasserie, then Wilhelm's Chophouse, is still barren and a constant reminder as I pass by that the restaurant biz is a tough one to be in.
Let's hope that the April 1st date is no joke.
