Change is afoot in the Lower Haight. Sushi Raw has closed at 628 Haight St. (along with its Outer Sunset location at 901 Taraval St.), but a new restaurant is coming in right behind it: Otra, owned by the team behind Son’s Addition in the Mission, Nicolas and Anna Sager Cobarruvias. 

A liquor license application was recently filed with the ABC, and Nicolas Cobarruvias confirmed that he and his wife/business partner are opening a restaurant in the former Sushi Raw space, although he was unable to offer more information about an opening date. 

During our conversation, he said that he and his wife were looking forward to opening a restaurant in the Lower Haight, since they live in the neighborhood. 

Otra's menu will be Mexican-focused, although the couple is still honing the restaurant's overall concept.

The restaurateurs opened Son’s Addition at 2990 24th St. in 2017. Its offerings involve traditional slow cooking, pickling and fermenting methods, including small bites such as bacon-kimchi deviled eggs, small plates such as roasted bone marrow, and large plates such as pan roasted local halibut.

We will provide updates about Otra once we have more information.
