A superstar tablehopper reader sent in a tip that ~ANNABELLE’S~ is closing, and a post on Facebook confirms that the restaurant and bar closed on Saturday May 16th after 30 years in SoMa. Unfortunately, we were unable to get any solid news on what is happening there moving forward, but a note from assistant general manager Guia Nocon says that they are “planning on a July reopen with a totally new design and concept.” 68 4th St. at Mission.
The newly opened ~AL’S PLACE~ is taking some days off for some quick upgrades in the coming weeks (so book your reservation now if you have been wanting to come by). From May 29th through June 7th, they’ll be working on seismic upgrades, some plumbing and electrical work that didn’t happen before they opened, and turning their basement space into a prep kitchen. They’ll be open again as usual on June 10th. 1499 Valencia St. at 25th St., 415-416-6136.
