The Castro location of ~A.G. FERRARI~ has closed, according to Hoodline. The company’s other five Bay Area locations remain in operation, though, despite some financial hard times for the local chain. 468 Castro St. at 18th St.

Back in July, we reported that Iza Ramen had filed for the ~SQUAT & GOBBLE~ space on Fillmore in the Lower Haight. Hoodline is reporting that the location is now permanently closed, but there’s no word on when Iza might be moving in. 237 Fillmore St. at Haight.

We’ve been tracking Brenda Buenviaje’s po’boy shop on Fillmore Street since 2012, but sadly it looks like that project is now dead. According to The New Fillmore, Buenviaje has decided not to move forward with the project. Though she declined to say why, the ongoing construction delays surely had a part to play in the project’s dead end. However, ~BRENDA’S MEAT & THREE~ is still offering many of her signature sandwiches, so you can still get them there. 1406-1408 Fillmore St. at Ellis.
