A couple of weeks ago we were musing about hot old chefs, and we wondered aloud where the hell Norman Van Aken had got to. I'm a bit late with this news, being way up here in Broward, but it turns out the Norman has returned at last to stage further conquests. A few days ago we heard this from South Florida Menu Pages:
Norman's 180 Scheduled For A Fall Opening
"We've been trying to get some more information on Norman's 180, Norman Van Aken's return to Coral Gables. As we reported before, the restaurant will be opening in the Hoja Nueva spot in the Westin Colonnade. Van Aken is apparently keeping a tight lid on any new developments. But we did manage to glean one piece of information: the restaurateur is hoping for an opening sometime this fall."
Thanks to Carolina Bolado for the info.
