Persimmon Café (582 Sutter Street at Mason), one of several restaurants and bars in the Union Square vicinity owned by Roxanne Sotano, is closing to make way for J Tu Café, as Eater earlier noted. The new restaurant next door to Cantina is helmed by one Johnny Tu, a former cook at the Marriott, but that’s about all we know so far. [Eater]
