Briefly Noted

North Beach’s Ethiopian restaurant Massawa has closed for good, the San Francisco Business Times reports. Its 532 Green Street location is believed to be the site for the new Americana Eatery . . . After all of the hubbub over Mayor London Breed declining to march in the city’s pride parade if uniformed police officers were not allowed to march, a compromise was eventually reached that would include both mayor and officers in the parade. But it was for naught in the end, as Breed contracted Covid and was quarantining on Pride weekend . . . In other mayoral news, Breed has proposed $500,000 in her next budget to expand services for Asian crime victims who have limited English proficiency. There was a 567 percent increase in reported hate crimes from 2020 to 2021, according to the San Francisco Police Department. The money would be split between trauma recovery clinical services, treatment at community-based mental health service providers, and senior escort services for the severely disabled.
