Closings: The Beautiful Struggle

A little more than a year ago, a pair of restaurants opened in the direct vicinity of the Jewish Community Center on California and Presidio. Unfortunately, after several weeks of “will-they or won’t-they,” (415) and California Street Delicatessen & Cafe finally shut down. A similar struggle also came to a close at Senses, one of the Mission’s nicer Californian-ish cuisine spots. Such is the life of a restaurant.

To round out our openings/closings news, we have two more related updates. One of our favorite Italian restaurants in the city, La Ciccia, is reopening tomorrow after a brief summer vacation, and Cow Holllow’s Ottimista Enoteca-Cafe will be open at 2pm after a similar hiatus.
