Chomp N' Swig, a casual sandwich and beer eatery that's operated at 1521 Clement St. (between 16th and 17th avenues) since 2012, closed abruptly in recent days. An eviction notice posted in the restaurant's window is dated May 16.

According to a neighbor we spoke to and its Facebook page, the restaurant will move to a new spot on Geary Boulevard at 16th Avenue in the former Jeff's Jeans storefront, formerly occupied by Eliseevski EuroMart. The phone number for the European market and deli is no longer in service, however, we weren't able to locate any public records to confirm the move.

As of yesterday afternoon, most fixtures, equipment and furniture had been removed from the restaurant's dining area and bar.

Chomp N' Swig is owned by David Heft and Albert Lara Rodriguez, who also operate Richmond Republic Draught House. We've attempted to reach Heft and Rodriguez via email and telephone and will update this story if we receive a reply.

This is the second recent closure in the area for a food venture; Heartbaker shuttered in January. A neighboring building, formerly home to Hot Sauce and Panko to Go, is being rebuilt as a four-story residential building with ground-floor office space, leaving this stretch of Clement Street with few food options.

Thanks to tipster Justin W.!
