The San Francisco Small Business Commission added 11 new businesses to its Legacy Business Registry including five restaurants and bars such as long-running favorite Mitchell’s Ice Cream. Among the other additions are two Irish pubs, the Dubliner and the Irish Bank Bar & Restaurant, plus North Beach’s Frascati and Mario’s Bohemian Cigar Store Cafe. Legacy businesses typically have operated for 30 years or more and are “longstanding, community-serving, and culturally vital businesses,” the commission stated in its press release. (And if you’re looking for suggestions on some legacy businesses to visit, here’s a handy list of favorite restaurants and bars.)
Woes at Fruitvale Public Market continue
Along with the news that Tacos El Ultimo Baile will temporarily close until at least the end of the year due to landlord issues at Oakland’s Fruitvale Public Market, East Bay Nosh reports many of the marker’s other tenants are also having problems with their spaces due to ongoing construction in the adjacent plaza and shootings in the area. The merchants put together a list of possible solutions to the issues, including requesting private security or police officers at the plaza, plus “much-needed upgrades” to the market like paint and outdoor seating. Although the Unity Council, which operates the market, told Nosh “beautification efforts” will be wrapped by September 15, policing efforts have mostly stalled, such as a decoy police car that was only in place for a week before being removed by the police department. For the full story, head to Nosh.
