Some closures around town: first, ~SEASONS RESTAURANT~ at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco has closed for a renovation; look for a new restaurant and concept in late May 2013. In the meantime, dining service is still available daily in Seasons Bar and Lounge for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails from 6:30am-12am.
Scoop reports Klaus and Albert Rainer have closed ~CAFE METROPOL~ after almost 20 years of business. Seems they are working on a new project; stand by. 168 Sutter St. at Kearny.
I was sorry to read on Twitter Friday evening that ~GITANE~ suffered a fire. The restaurant is currently closed, and they are aiming to reopen Thursday November 15th. Fortunately no one was injured.
Up in Mill Valley, a tipster let me know that ~HAWK’S TAVERN~ had closed. 507 Miller Ave. at Camino Alto, Mill Valley.
