Anthony Vidal, previously of Hash House a Go Go, comes on board as the executive chef of Downtown's Therapy. Previously, Daniel Ontiveros of Comme Ca fame, was heading up the kitchen and left in November. Daniel Laferriere had been filling in as the interim executive chef for the last two months.

Vidal started his cooking experiments growing up the son of a single parent in the South Bronx. After graduating from the New York Restaurant School, he hit the road to Pasadena, Calif., where he worked at the Cheesecake Factory and later opened the Grand Lux Café in the Venetian. That led to stints at Rock Lobster in Mandalay Bay and a return to the Cheesecake Factory at the Forum Shops at Caesars, and later opening locations in Phoenix and Chandler, Ariz.

Then he returned to Vegas to work at the newly opened Commander's Palace. That's when Jim Rees reached out to Vidal to help him open a new restaurant —  Hash House a Go Go — where he was the corporate chef outlets nationwide including four in Vegas.
