A couple of closures for you, including the stylish ~GITANE~, which had its last dinner service on February 17th. Unfortunately, after 10 years in the location, the landlord didn’t renew Au Bon Repas restaurant group owner Franck LeClerc’s lease. But the good news: he told Scoop he is moving Gitane to a new location in the Galleria Park Hotel. It will be a more cocktail-driven concept called Bar Gitane and is slated to open in September (it’s opening in the former DB Shoes). 150 Kearny St. at Sutter.

Over in North Beach, both ~DOC RICKETTS~ and the downstairs club ~DOC’S LAB~ (in the space that was at one time the historic Purple Onion) are closed. (You can find chef Justin Deering over at Scala’s Bistro.) 124 Columbus Ave. at Pacific. [Via Scoop.]
