I am sorry to hear about the impending closure of the very kind “Tak” Matsuba’s ~BUSHI-TEI~ at the end of the month—he has reportedly sold the restaurant to an unnamed buyer. Eater posted his note announcing the upcoming closure. Best wishes to him and the staff.

A friend let me know the location of ~OZONE THAI~ on Polk Street has closed. I am waiting to hear back from the new owner about his plans for the space, stand by. 1160 Polk St. at Sutter, 415-440-9663.

Over in the Mission, you can read on Eater about the terrible flooding that temporarily closed ~SAISON~ and ~HUMPHRY SLOCOMBE~ after those nasty storms last week. Good news: Saison reopens tonight.

Not too far away, according to Grub Street , ~CAFÉ GRATITUDE: SAN FRANCISCO~ is on the market. Stand by for details on whether it gets sold or not—for now, it remains open.
