This remains unconfirmed at this time, but according to this post on Chowhound, ~HAMA-KO~, the traditional sushi place in Cole Valley, will be closing at the end of September after 28 years in business. The owners are reportedly taking a much-needed retirement—and just like that, the city’s count of sushi Nazis takes a hit. 108 Carl St. at Cole, 415-753-6808.

Also on Chowhound, ~CANTEEN~ is no longer serving weekend brunch at all. Crap, it was my favorite eggs Benedict in the city. Farewell, chupacabra and amazing house-baked brioche for brunch. Sob.

In the unexpected (potential) comeback category, Scoop reports ~TU LAN~ is making the requested changes by the health department (stainless steel shelves, a new co-manager, and more) and will be allowed to apply for a new permit instead of going to a hearing; if all goes well, the plan is to reopen in October. 8 6th St. at Market.
