By Dana Eastland. We received an email this week that ~LOCAL MISSION EATERY~ is closing on Saturday December 19th, after five years in business. According to their note, they’ve struggled to stay busy in recent months, and the departure of Jake and Shauna DesVoignes for Lodi and the closure of Knead Patisserie in October didn’t help. Apparently, there were also staffing issues (a refrain that we’re hearing a lot these days). Local Mission Market and Local Cellar remain open, and reservations are available for their final week of business.

Fulton Street dessert bar ~CANDY BAR~ has closed, Hoodline reports. There’s a new omakase-style sushi place moving in, called ~JU-NI~, and it looks like chef Jessica Tanaka Noblia (previously of Nopa) is involved (in case her last name seems familiar, she’s married to local chef Mattin Noblia). We’ve reached out for more details and haven’t heard anything yet. 1335 Fulton St. at Divisadero.
