A Lower Haight, Southern seafood staple for 45 years (since 1977!), ~TWO JACK’S NIK’S PLACE~, has sadly closed as of July 14th. Second generation owner Nikki Cooper, who took over 16 years ago, sold the remainder of her lease, but is relocating the staff to the Bayview location (at 984 Gilman Ave.). Two Jack’s was the first Legacy business in San Francisco, and was inducted into the Museum of Food and Drink in New York, such notable achievements.

Nikki also won the 2019 NAACP Entrepreneur of the Year award, and announced she accepted a new position as Program Director for the San Francisco African American Chamber of Commerce. Congrats and best wishes to her in this new chapter. You can read more in her heartfelt Instagram post here. Here’s to all the community memories in that iconic spot. 401 Haight St. at Webster.

A friend in Noe Valley let me know the ~PATXI’S PIZZA~ location on 24th Street has closed, with an eviction notice in the window, ugh. Seems like the place was in a backslide lately, with unhappy regulars over the past year. 4042 24th St. at Castro.
