Very late on Friday night, a tablehopper follower on Twitter let me know ~CHEZ SPENCER~ was on fire. Ugh. ABC7 reports it was a two-alarm fire, causing “nearly $1.2 million in damage”—such a bummer, that beautiful restaurant. We will stand by for updates from owner Laurent Katgely on reconstruction and a reopening. 82 14th St. at Folsom, 415-864-2191.
