After 47 years in the Castro, historic neighborhood restaurant Flore (formerly known as Cafe Flore) has closed at 2298 Market St.
Flore’s general manager, Luke Bruner, confirmed the restaurant had closed, but declined to provide any details. It appears to have shuttered quietly at some point during the holiday season.
While Flore is no longer serving food and drink on a daily basis, a sign on the exterior says it will still be hosting private events in the “greenhouse event space,” which will be “open for special events all winter long.” Those interested in renting out the space are encouraged to contact Flore’s event manager…
Despite its new focus on events, Flore’s website and social media pages currently list only one upcoming event: a re-election campaign kickoff for Wiener, who is now a State Senator. The party is set to take place this Saturday, January 11, from 10 – 11 a.m. (more)
Just found out about this. Very sad. Another vanishing venue for the displacement map.
