The Shutter is where we bid farewell to restaurants and bars. Pass along tips here.
1) Russian Hill: Right on schedule, lunch service today marks the swan song for neighborhood fave Le Petit Robert. According to a Polk Street tipster, a few regulars were shuffling in for the last hurrah before La Boulange moseys on into the bigger corner space. But what will Roland Passot do with the old La Boulange space? [ShutterWire, earlier]
2) Embarcadero Center: Little Bobby's isn't the only place shutting down after lunchtime, as the dubiously-name SF-New York Deli will close today too. The closet-sized kosher deli has (had) pretty good real estate: tucked below the Hyatt, right next to Osha Thai, steps from the Embarcadero and in the midst of office buildings. I.e., it's the kind of space Dennis Leary would love. Taking its place will be Celebrity Deli, which is reported to be a falafel joint. [ShutterWire]
