Popular champagne bar The Riddler will be closing in August for a seismic retrofit. The closure is mandated for earthquake safety by the city of San Francisco.

In an email, the owners told us they will use this time to refresh and touch up some of the interior space.

Its last day of service will be Sunday, July 28th, and the closure should last through the end of August. We will keep you posted on any updates.

We reported last year that a Mission location for Tselogs was in the works (its other locations are in the Tenderloin and Daly City), and the Filipino restaurant is now open for business. Menu items such as tapsilog, sisiglog, arroz caldo pares, and daily chef specials are now offered, in addition to beer and wine.
