Rumors and Tidbits: Baron's Quality Meats is opening soon in the former Drewe's Meats space; DavidsTea will be closing at the end of August or sooner; La Nebbia is closed and Sharon Ardiana (of Ragazza on Divisadero) will be opening a new restaurant in a few months in the space with an Italian/Mediterranean menu; Green11 is relocating to the East Bay; two more retail spaces that have been co-opted by boutique offices: the former laundromat at Castro and Clipper  is becoming a design studio called Studio 9 and an architecture firm is taking over the space at Noe and Alvarado. Similarly, the former The Ark Space on 24th at Vicksburg will house a mercantile, home design and real estate business for realtor Stephen Moore. Some changes are in the works for the checkout lanes at Whole Foods and by the end of March there should be a demolition crew tackling the space next to St. Clair's Liquors (the plan is 3 residential spaces and retail below).
