San Francisco's punishing restaurant landscape has claimed another local business, as North Beach's Barbary Coast Gastropub closed its doors at the end of January.
It's been less than a year since the restaurant and bar, which boasts a leafy back patio, opened in the former Bocce Cafe space at 478 Green St. But, as it shared on Facebook, "due to lack of local patronage and continued losses," the restaurant closed its doors on January 29th.
Opened in April 2016 as a neighborhood-friendly spot with a varied menu at a range of price points, Barbary Coast offered weekend (and Friday) brunch as well as dinner, when it offered bar-friendly dishes such as burgers, oysters, wings, pizzas, and more. At the bar, barrel-aged, classic and craft cocktails were a focus.
Barbary Coast shared the following farewell message on its Facebook page:
Thank you to all of the people who have supported this venture since April ... Special thanks to all of the loyal kitchen staff and those who have been with the project since beginning.
There's no word yet on what might be next for the space.
