Update on Habana Outpost

October 26, 2007

I spoke by email to someone from Habana Outpost about the rumor that they’ll remain open this winter — sadly, they won’t.  But he did say that they are considering it for next year. 

I for one, would happily continue to frequent the restaurant in the winter.  Cravings for that veggie burrito don’t disappear with the warm weather!

GOOD Magazine Profiles Habana Outpost (now open year round!)

GOOD, a great magazine that has just been brought to my attention, profiles Habana Outpost in its latest issue.  The article primarily covers the creative ways in which the restaurant/bar/market has embraced sustainable design.  But it also informs us that Habana has a new basement lounge and will now remain open year round!

Developments: Myrtle Edition

*If the space (at the corner of Washington and Myrtle) discussed in this post does indeed become a Starbucks, can we all just make a pact not to frequent it?  That’ll solve that problem.

*On a brighter note, Myrtle Avenue is getting spruced up.
