Selmar J. Monro—the restaurateur once dubbed "The Mayor of Geary Street" by Herb Caen—passed away last week at the age of 86: "Mr. Monro, who owned and operated a dozen restaurants in the Bay Area during his career, was widely known in the restaurant industry for his dedication to his customers and for promoting San Francisco ... He earned his moniker for having three restaurants on Geary Street - Pam Pam at Geary and Taylor, now home to the Grand Cafe; Pam Pam East at Geary and Mason; and Rosebud's next to the St. Francis Hotel, now the site of an art gallery."
