Black Cat Cafe’s new digs and Vardy’s return

You may have gathered, if you’ve heard that Rene Rodriguez’ new restaurant Navarra, has opened in the Black Cat space on Murray Street (reviewed September 21) that the Black Cat Cafe is no longer there.  Long time Cat owner Richard Urquhart has relocated to Preston Street, in the space vacated by the steakhouse somRuedee.  Breaking news is that Steve Vardy (famously of Beckta, then of Par-fyum, then for a time at Whalesbone) has returned from Newfoundland for two years to launch the latest life of Ottawa’s most famous Cat.
