Hair of the Dog Installs New Awnings on Orchard

Posted on: April 6th, 2012 at 6:18 am by

Contractors at 168 Orchard Street recently replaced the retractable awnings along the marquee. But in a sly move, pieces from the old Cafe Charbon fabric were clipped to prevent any big reveal. Unfortunately for Hair of the Dog, yesterday evening had just enough of a breeze to lift the skirt, so to speak. They read, “Bar & Grille.”

Meanwhile, the plywood barriers were also removed from the frontage, unveiling a new entrance into the establishment. Still no talk of the opening date, with the official website still promising “coming soon.”

It’s also worth noting, as one commenter pointed out, that the canine-themed logo for Hair of the Dog suspiciously resembles that of Zucco’s Le French Diner just up the block.  Just sayin’.
