Two Valencia restaurants suffered damage from the same fire early Saturday. As Uptown Almanac reports, We Be Sushi (538 Valencia) and Thai House 530 (530 Valencia) were both severely fire- and water-damaged, but Blondie’s, next door at 540 Valencia, appears to have been unscathed. Both restaurants seem likely to be closed several months at least. This fire follows on other recent fires at Little Baobab, Merritt Bakery, Forbes Island, and of course, the March fire at Chez Panisse — Chez Panisse is set to reopen June 10. [Uptown Almanac]
