Citing the usual suspects (rising rents and dwindling crowds) in addition to the newfound North Beach ruckus, Andrew Jaeger’s House of Seafood & Jazz in The Condor Club closed this weekend. We’re not sure why Andrew Jaeger’s did not catch on better, as authentic Louisiana cooking is hard to come by in the city. Coupled with live jazz and prime real estate (the corner of Columbus and Broadway), Andrew Jaeger’s seemed like a sure bet to succeed, but alas, its shuttering just goes to show you how difficult it is to succeed in the restaurant business in a city with astronomical rents.
According to the Tablehopper, the husband and wife team (Mr. and Mrs. Jaeger, we presume) are heading back to Louisiana to participate in a new restaurant project in French Settlement Lousiana. Bonne chance.
