Vogue Steakhouse?

What's a teetering magazine empire to do in a time of financial and ad-page crisis? Why, open a chain of restaurants, of course. Gawker reports: ""Conde Nast Restaurants." This is a new, official division of Conde Nast, which is not technically a food company! Nevertheless, Conde is forging ahead with plans to open a slew of restaurants across the world, branded after Conde magazines. Moscow already has Vogue Cafe, GQ Bar and Tatler Club. And that is only the beginning, friends: "Mr. Newhouse said he hopes to open one or two restaurants in 2011 and as many as five per year after that. The company initially is targeting places like Dubai and Hong Kong and early efforts will focus on licensing Vogue and GQ, which have 17 and 15 international editions, respectively. Other cities being considered include Istanbul and Kiev."' [Gawker]
