Sad news from Potrero Hill, where a hefty rent increase has led Lingba to close up shop. The last day for the trendy southeast Asian spot will be next Saturday, December 19, topping off a year of upheaval on Potrero that also saw Eliza's and Baraka go down. No word on chef/owner Cody Robertson's next step but sources at the restaurant say that this new development effectively kills the taqueria concept next door that got approved by the city last month. Sweets to the sweet, farewell.

Update: Though the restaurant will still close, the bar will stay open, for now.
