After 7 years serving Castro residents and visitors Zadin (4039 18th Street), the well-rated Vietnamese-style restaurant next to Moby Dick, will be closing today according to a note posted on their website. We sent an email to the owners to find out why they had to close, but have not yet heard back.
The good news is that the business will not be sitting empty for long. An alcohol license transfer request reveals that Urban Picnic, the California Vietnamese eatery located on Kearny Street in the Financial District, will be opening their second location in the soon-to-be-vacated space. Urban Picnic boasts the mantra "Eating Right" on their website stating,
Our ingredients, rich in Superfood antioxidants, are carefully selected to provide nourishing health benefits, while our menu delivers on delicious California Asian flavors.
We offer a variety of vegetarian and vegan options with the majority of our menu being gluten free and always msg-free.
Our local produce is delivered and prepared fresh daily and our dressings are made from scratch with zero trans fat. We even pickle our own veggies.
You can even order ahead online for pickup.
We'll let you know when Urban Picnic finally moves into the space. For now, we bid adieu to Zadin.
