You may have seen some news coverage regarding the Park Hotel SRO that went up in a three-alarm blaze yesterday evening and sent smoke billowing south all over SoMa. But you may not have known that Moya Ethiopian restaurant (1044 Folsom), which opened less than a year ago, lived on the ground floor of that building, and they are now closed. (The building also sits directly across Russ Street from Fondue Cowboy, which was undamaged but may not have done much business last night.) In total 75 residents were displaced, and the SFFD was talking about the building being structurally unsound, so the chances of Moya’s reopening there appear slim. [Grub Street, Examiner, SFist]
