The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy announced that it has “made the difficult decision to close our kitchen operations and the cafes that serve visitors and community members at the Warming Hut on Crissy Field and the Round House Cafe,” which is located in the Golden Gate Bridge Plaza. “Like many restaurants in the Bay Area, we faced increasing challenges in food preparation services.”
The Conservancy said it would close the Warming Hut for about eight weeks beginning in March to retool it as a visitor information and retail location for the park. “After this revitalization,” the Conservancy said, “people will still be able to purchase hot drinks, cold beverages and snacks to enjoy in our seating area inside the Warming Hut.”
la folie closing after 32 years
Shortly before this issue went to press, we learned that Russian Hill French restaurant La Folie (2316 Polk Street) will close in mid-March upon the retirement of chef and owner Roland Passot.
