As mentioned last week, Mission empanada shop Chile Lindo, opened by the once mobile Girl from Empanada back in January, was in a battle with a neighborhood disabled man who took them and their landlord to task for not having a disabled-access ramp to allow entry into their shop. Today, SFoodie reports that the place has shuttered, and while Birdsall finds the news “completely infuriating,” Kauffman writes a sympathetic essay about how important the ADA is. The Weekly appears to be struggling mightily over which disenfranchised group to side with: the under-funded, mom-and-pop, street food operation, or the angry disabled guy who sued them out of business.
