Let's revisit the lower Polk Street corridor for a moment, shall we? Last week, it came out that O'Reilly's Holy Grail shuttered for (at least) Thursday evening, and that food service was abandoned after the kitchen staff and suppliers were cut. Since then, a few more items of note have emerged, though the situation remains a bit muddled.
First off, this SF Weekly article sheds some light on what might be some financial difficulties after owner/landlord Myles O'Reilly was a victim of a (just plain mean) person dubbed a "serial evictee." Second, the restaurant/bar was open over the weekend, albeit in a very limited capacity: a sparse crowd, no food, and no phone, all which makes for a case that can only be called ... curious. Running on fumes or simply trying to get back to normal? As always, anyone with more information is encouraged to share.
