Closures: Temporary and Permanent


On March 24th, ~FLOUR + WATER~ is temporarily closing for a refresh of the interior (refinishing, fresh paint, and the like). When it reopens on Monday April 4th, here’s some carb-tastic news for you: chef Thomas McNaughton will be upping the number of daily pastas from five to eight.

Are you a fan of the lounge at ~COI~? Well, you have until April 2nd to swing by for your last bowl of udon off the à la carte menu, because according to the Scoop, chef-owner Daniel Patterson is converting it into a second dining room. When the restaurant reopens on April 7th (its fifth birthday), only the tasting menu will be available throughout the restaurant.

And in the permanent closure department, SFoodie noted that ~PUDONG~, the Shanghaiese brasserie that opened in the former Mecca in the Castro, has closed after just three months of business. Don’t even get me started on the unfortunate name.
