Persimmon Café Closing Near Union Square

By

Persimmon Café (582 Sutter Street at Mason), one of several restaurants and bars in the Union Square vicinity owned by Roxanne Sotano, is closing to make way for J Tu Café, as Eater earlier noted. The new restaurant next door to Cantina is helmed by one Johnny Tu, a former cook at the Marriott, but that's about all we know so far. [Eater]
