By Christmas, the area should be one more fancy eatery richer, thanks to Blade Haddock. The 42-year-old restaurateur used to own Blade’s Prime Chophouse in Sundance Square. Last year, after XTO Energy bought the building in which Blade’s was housed, word on the street was that his establishment would eventually be turned into office space. Haddock didn’t hang around.
In December, he closed up shop, began looking for new digs, and found space at the Village. Fans of Blade’s — and there are many — will be heartened to learn that Haddock plans on not only reproducing his former restaurant’s cooler-than-cool ’60s-era Vegas vibe but turning it up a notch.
