    you should have an option for “i don’t like either.” i didn’t really like the xochitl logo, but the new one is better than the old one.

    Which is the new and which is the old?

  • gigi

    yes, matt. there should be and option for “i don’t like either.” that’s my vote.

  • lk

    the new logo reminds me of the butcher and singer logo….hmmm trying to trick some guests for business maybe?

  • mazza3

    hate them both. i would pick the old one if i had to but only if they redesigned the 1.

  • JJK

    The new logo is cheesy and looks like a logo for a diner.

    There was a time when their logo only featured the odd looking symbol on the left of that bottom logo (i guess you’re supposed to see a T, a 3 and a 1 in the negative space?) That was ridiculous, but the newest one is just terrible although acceptable when you consider that they’re in the same building that puts out crap like this:

    Get out your black Nikes, kids. We’re gonna surf the web!

    Don’t know exactly why a newer place chooses to change it’s original logo so soon after opening. Was the original logo not thought-out properly (although, it is my favorite between the two)?

    It just does not make sense to change your brand so quickly. Afterall, re-branding cost some coin. And in these economic conditions, is it really justified to start from scratch?

    One reason for the redesign is that when Table 31 initially opened it was a steakhouse.

    They are also unifying the Plaza Cafe and Table 31 under a singular identity. A decision that no doubt can also be debated.

    Here’s that other logo Bobblehead Joe references.

    What if I like both? What if I’m insecure and need to trash everything around me? Oh, looks like the latter option is already there.

  • orchidmask

    I like the Plaza Cafe ‘s logo as a stand alone. No?

    They really are two different places. Seasonal vs year round…
