Another one bites the dust. After 26 years, news broke in March that Capri Ristorante was set to change ownership. Now Grub Street brings us the name of its replacement: Canela, the Spanish and Italian word for "cinnamon." No word yet on an opening date.
According to Inside Scoop, the former Darla's space won't stay dark for long. Patxi's is poised to take over the Inner Sunset spot by late summer.
From EaterSF, the Castro is gaining two new restaurants. Local health-food chain Beautifull! opened its
