Things didn’t quite work out for Jonathan Waxman over at Ghirardelli Square. Seems his recently opened chicken spot ~JBIRD~ has closed, and the restaurant ~WAXMAN’S~ will not reopen after all.

Meanwhile, over in Noe Valley, ~CASKHOUSE~ (3853 24th St.) has closed, and owner John Dampeer is now focusing all his attention on his newer bar and restaurant, ~HAMLET~ (1199 Church St. at 24th St.).

A reader let me know that after five years of taking care of surfers, day-trippers, beachgoers, and fire pit-lovin’ locals, the ~SURF SPOT~ in Pacifica has closed. 4627 Coast Hwy. 1, Pacifica, 877-625-2929.
