Joe's Cable Car Closes; Hayes Street Grill Turns 35

EXCELSIOR—Yesterday was the end of the line for Joe's Cable Car, which, as previously announced, called it quits so Joe Obegi could retire after 49 years of serving "ground steak" to clients from around the globe. As expected, there were lines out the door. "It's beautiful to find out how many people love us," says Obegi, who refused to sell; the space will likely become condos. [KPIX]

HAYES VALLEY—Meanwhile, across town, another veteran restaurant is honoring a big anniversary. Hayes Street Grill is 35 today, and is offering a $35 prix fixe with oysters, corned beef and cabbage, and an Irish coffee sundae to celebrate. [Hoodline]

BERKELEY—A new wine bar called La Botella Republic is on its way to Berkeley next month, from husband-and-wife owners Christopher Clarke and Lauren Brody-Clarke. They'll offer NorCal wine and beer for tasting in-house or to go, with paired bites. [Berkeleyside Nosh]

THE MISSION—Speaking of bottle shops, Local Cellar, the new local booze emporium from the Local: Mission Eatery, Local Mission Market, and Local's Corner crew, has debuted in the Mission with food-friendly NorCal wine and beers. Housemade tonics and mixers will arrive soon. [Tablehopper]
