Bar Bambino Owner Blames Valencia Restaurant Boom for Restaurant’s Closure

Bar Bambino

"The decision to close was a lengthy, gut-wrenching decision I had to make. It’s one of the most painful and difficult decisions I’ve made in my life... Our location is being left out of this vortex of transformation on Valencia Street. I put my stake on 16th Street six years ago and I still believe in that neighborhood. I think there is going to be a great transformation for that area." — Bar Bambino owner Christopher Losa on his just-announced decision to close the restaurant after six years of solid reviews and decent business, though the last year of competition has been rough.
