A slew of closures happened while I was away the past couple of weeks; please excuse if any of this is old news for ya. First, Charles Phan has closed ~WO HING GENERAL STORE~. 584 Valencia St. at 17th St.
Just as I was taking off to New Zealand, an industry friend let me know ~GUNG HO~ was closing, in spite of its can-do name. Look for Eric Ehler to pop back up with Seoul Patch soon. 680 8th St. at Brannan.
Over at the base of Potrero, Scoop noted ~PIZZA NOSTRA~ has closed. The latest update is the next incarnation will be ~KITCHEN MOJO~, with David Yeung of HRD Coffee Shop and HRD Smokin Grill coming on board. Look for an opening around May 1st, with an eclectic menu of Asian, Mediterranean, Latin, and American influences. 300 De Haro St. at 16th St.
Eater announced ~TAI CHI~ on Polk has shuttered. My ex-boyfriend was obsessed with their green beans; am sure he’s not happy with the news. Permits show the same owners of Country Sky Chinese on Steiner are taking it over (who happen to be my favorite delivery for desperation dim sum and wor wonton soup when I am sick). 2031 Polk St. at Broadway.
