Potrero Hill residents are going to be losing MARKET & RYE at the end of August, after five years of business. Chef Ryan Scott is busy focusing on his new project opening in October, Finn Town—he just hired his chef de cuisine, Jason Raffin (previously Bin 38, Evvia in Palo Alto). Scott has other projects, too, including a new cookbook. The landlord is currently accepting applicants for potential new restaurants. 300 DeHaro St. at 16th St.
An ABC permit transfer reveals that after 11 years, SAHA in the Hotel Carlton has closed and will be replaced by something potentially called Love Crumbs. Saha owners Mohamed and Marmee Aboghanem are actually moving their restaurant to Berkeley, into the recently closed Herbivore location. Since Saha was enjoyable to many vegetarians, their new digs should hopefully be a smooth transition. 1075 Sutter St. at Larkin and 2451 Shattuck Ave. at Haste, Berkeley.
