La Salsa, Pomodoro, Lure, and More Call It Quits

1) Pacific Heights: On the prized corner of Fillmore and California, La Salsa is shutting down operations today. Perhaps even more intriguing for that location is the liquor license app submitted by Jack Schwartz (who has worked at A Cote and 1550 Hyde, among others) for a new restaurant called Tacobar.

2) North Beach: The end of 2009 was decidedly unkind to the Pasta Pomodoro empire. To cap off a five month period that already saw the Inner Sunset and Castro locations close, the North Beach location is doneski too, meaning that there are only three locations left (Laurel Heights, Cow Hollow and Noe). And to think, Pomodoro was named best restaurant in town just earlier this year. [EaterWire]

3) The Peninsula: Down in San Mateo, the time has finally come for Lure to shutter. The restaurant's lease is up and the owners decided not to renew it. [EaterWire]

4) Lower Haight: Via a tipster comes word that restaurants in the Lower Haight are dropping like flies. From the tipline: "La Carreta Taqueria, at Haight and Fillmore next to Toronado and home of one of the worst burritos in the city, appears to be finally closing, as its windows are all covered up. Raja Cuisine of India, at the corner of Haight and Fillmore next to Cafe International, home of the slowest and creamiest Indian food in the city, also has its windows all covered up. Hanabi Japanese Restaurant, at Haight and Fillmore next to Naan n' Chutney, does not appear to be open anymore as many pieces of furniture have been taken down, and a recent Yelp review has it rumored to be replaced by another Japanese restaurant. Arguably the three least populated restaurants in the Lower Haight." [EaterWire]
