Although The Chronicle and Eater SF both reported yesterday that 1300 on Fillmore is closing its doors permanently, Hoodline has learned that the restaurant is temporarily closing while the city finds a new owner for the Fillmore Heritage center.

Hoodline checked in with Monetta White, who co-owns the restaurant with her husband, Chef David Lawrence. She said the closure is hopefully “a short-term decision for a long-term stay. While the restaurant suspends service, “we will be changing our business model.”

White and Lawrence opened 1300 On Fillmore in 2007 as part of an effort to recreate the Fillmore District’s live music scene, which had its heyday until the neighborhood was redeveloped as part of a larger urban renewal scheme in the 1960s.

“But this is both an ending and a new beginning, as we take a pause until The City of San Francisco has found a new buyer for the 50,000-square-foot commercial component of the Fillmore Heritage Center, which includes the vacant former Yoshi’s SF space, art gallery, 160-car parking garage and of course our restaurant 1300 on Fillmore. We hope to revamp, revise and relaunch in 2018.

You have one more chance to help us celebrate 10 amazing years of 1300 on Fillmore! “Last Call Party @1300” will take place on Wednesday, October 25 from 5:30 pm to close. Our bar will be open for you to order your favorite drinks and bar bites (no dinner reservations will be available). Please come and share your favorite memories from 1300 with us!” – Monetta (Co-Owner) and David (Executive Chef. Co-Owner )
