Exterior of John Walker & Co.
Back in June, Grub Street and Eater filed some reports on the temporary closure of downtown’s ~JOHN WALKER & CO.~ due to a liquor license suspension. Everyone seemed to hope for a reopening, but a tablehopper reader tip points to permanent closure. From John Walker’s website: “1933-2011. We are grateful to all of our customers, employees, vendors and friends who have supported us over the years.” Bummer. That place had some deep history. 175 Sutter St. at Kearny.
