Open or Shut or Changed

Awhile back, I mentioned ~TANGERINE~ in the Castro was closing and relocating (still no word on where); Grub Street mentions a place called ~KITCHEN STORY~ will be taking its place, with plans to open in November. 3499 16th St. at Sanchez.

The Scoop reported on the impending closure (this Saturday October 13th) of ~LALOLA~ on Russian Hill; liquor license activity points to a business called ~MASONPACIFIC~ opening in the location. 1358 Mason St. at Pacific.

Haighteration mentions that after 10 years, ~CHILLI CHA CHA~ has closed. Reportedly another Thai restaurant will be opening in its place, and Chilli Cha Cha is looking for a new location. 494 Haight St. at Fillmore.

The Richmond Blog reported ~MAYFLOWER SEAFOOD~ in the Outer Richmond has closed, and after some renovations, taking its place will be ~SHAI LAI SEAFOOD~. 6255 Geary Blvd. at 27th Ave.

In Hayes Valley, the former ~TARTINE CAFÉ~ has changed its name to ~TALBOT CAFÉ~ and refreshed the interior a bit. 244 Gough St. at Hickory.

Eater reports ~HYDE STREET BISTRO~ is now ~COCOTTE~ (although the owner, Mikael Audry, is the same). The new menu is more rustic, with rotisserie chicken as a highlight. 1521 Hyde St. at Jackson.
