Nosa Ria, purveyor of "quintessential Spanish foods" at Laguna and Fell, has quietly closed its doors after a little over two years in business. 
Tipster Nico first alerted us to the closure, which took place earlier this month. A recent glimpse through the papered-over windows showed that the space was stripped of inventory.

"Since 2010, our journey has been life-changing," stated owners Manuel and Krista in a farewell message. "We have walked in the shoes of San Francisco small-business owners; toughening our souls, with a few blisters along the way ... and many life lessons learned." However, they said, "It’s time now for us to take another path."

Nosa Ria opened in the former Blo Salon space in August 2012, with a selection of Iberian imports that included wine and foods like jamón, chorizo, cheeses and olive oil. 

Earlier this year, we spotted a real estate listing for the space, and a tipster recently shared word that another business may have made an offer to buy the fixtures and take over the lease. As to what that new business might be, we have no details as of yet, but stay tuned for more news in 2015.
