Some closures to report, including the multi-million dollar CRYSTAL JADE, after four years at Embarcadero Four. No word who the new owners are just yet, but there is a taker for the 20,000-square-foot space. A couple years ago, there was a fun rumor that Yank Sing was taking over, but that didn’t manifest. Maybe now? [scratching chin] Four Embarcadero Center, Drumm St. at Sacramento.
Over in Cow Hollow, CONTRADA has closed after two years. Bummer. SF, you are so tough on restaurants right now. 2136 Union St. at Webster. [Via Hoodline.]
Two years after opening DIP in North Beach, Mahmoud “Mo” Khossoussi of Maykadeh has closed his French dip spot. 1318 Grant Ave. at Vallejo. [Via Eater.]
Poor ~GREENS~ suffered a kitchen fire, and is closed through July for repairs. Stand by for a reopening date. [Via Eater.]
There are some problems at Mission’s old-timer LA VICTORIA BAKERY (67 years and counting)—the Examiner reports sub-tenants (including Sour Flour) were evicted and given 30-day notices of “termination of tenancy”—read the article for details about the complicated story. The building was put up for sale, but it’s not clear if there is a buyer, or what the fate of the bakery is. 2937 24th St. at Alabama. [Via Eater.]
