The Shutter: A. Sabella's Ends 87-Year Run

Your regular dose of restaurant and bar closings around town arrives via The Shutter. The City is unforgiving when it comes to restaurants, so do share you sightings.

After nearly a century of crabs, calamari and abalone, the day has finally come for wharf institution A. Sabella's to call it quits. Sunday night will be the last hurrah for the Sabella family, who have been at the corner of Taylor and Jefferson since 1920 (coincidentally the same year Michael Bauer started at the Chron). The reason for the shuttering is a simple one: the fourth generation just lost the passion for the restaurant business and decided to move on.

Also of note, the Sabellas will be holding a pair of auctions on the 13th to dole out the remaining belongings. The first will involve the cellar's leftover fine wines, but the second will be selling the interesting stuff: restaurant and bar equipment. So if you've been looking for a "Masthead Female w Horn - Replica," you are in luck. Unless of course, you're unwilling to settle for the replica.
