The Shutter

The long weekend marked the end of the road for Ararat, the Mediterranean tapas bar that made its home in the odd upstairs space at 4072 18th Street. Blame the unremarkable food or the dozen steps up from the sidewalk, but the real lesson here is that as soon as a restaurant resorts to posting its own Yelp shills in the window, it's only a matter of time before The Shutter arrives with a vengeance. As reported earlier, a semi-upscale Italian restaurant named Poesia is going to try its hand at the cursed Castro space next. [ShutterWire]
