The VCC Architectural Review Committee gave provisional approval to Cafe Habana yesterday. Despite allegedly high standing room only occupancy numbers, the Cuban restaurant's capacity will be just 172 people. Plans will have to be revised to reflect designated waiting areas and utilities. After that, Cafe Habana will go before the VCC yet again — this time for design approval. The next Vieux Carre Commission meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 1 at 1:30pm in the City Council Chambers.
