UNION SQUARE—More hotel news comes from Madame Tablehopper: the Orchard Hotel's Vignette would now prefer to be called something a bit more flowery: Daffodil. In addition to the name change, there's a chef change afoot as well: Russel Rummer, the chef at Roots in the Orchard's sister hotel will take on a second kitchen. As for the food, they are going to take a novel approach: a local ingredient-driven menu. [TH]

UNION SQUARE—Every Thursday through Saturday in October, veggie-destination Millennium will be offering a revolving 4-course prix fixe menu featuring a different ingredient from the the fall harvest. So basically, it's like Iron Chef meets vegetarians. This week: autumn greens. Next week: potatoes! $48/person; $22/optional wine pairing. [EaterWire Inbox]
