One of the perks of our job running NEOFOODIES is we get heads up on any new restaurants or when a restaurant comes under new ownership. When that happens, we feel it’s our duty to check them out for our readers. This review comes from 2 diﬀerent perspectives, 1) As owner & Administrator of NEOFOODIES & 2) As an artist who works on Waterloo. The latter is just as important as the former because Waterloo is lined up & down the street with a thriving arts & culture scene all looking for where to eat.
I was informed that one of my favorite restaurants, The Standard was sold & under a new owner & chef. His name is Said Ouaddaadaa, originally from Casablanca, Morocco & formally from Bodega & Club Isabella. I had heard great things about Bodega & they were on my list of places yet to try so I was optimistic. His partner in this new venture is Michael J. Kav & he is the new GM & co-proprietor.
