We just received word from a neighbor that Pasta Pomodoro at 4000 24th St will close for good after today's service. We called to confirm, and were told that the owner of the building is planning major renovations. At this point there are no plans to reopen at this location. The staff didn't know any other details, and stated they were given notice three days ago. We'll post more when we have more info.
Update (10/29): No word yet from Pasta Pomodoro corporate, but we did do a quick permit search.
We walked by this afternoon and workers are clearing the space. There's a new sign on the door stating they "lost their lease" and to visit other locations. The parking space permit is listed for 1090-1092 Noe Street and so we looked up that address. Sure enough - a construction permit was filed in May: "PARTIAL VOLUNTARY SEISMIC UPGRADE AT GROUND FLOOR ONLY, NEW SIDING & REPAINT EXTERIOR WALL." Partial, sure, but there are nine special inspections required. This is work is likely to comply with SF's Mandatory Soft Story Program.
