These are the San Francisco Bay Area restaurants that closed in June

The June 15 reopening of the economy in California ushered in the moment that all restaurants and bars were waiting for: a return of customers and some semblance of normalcy for the businesses that have struggled over the past year during the pandemic. A small handful of businesses weren’t able to make it all the way through June, from a well-known Oakland beer garden to a ramen place that barely made it through a year. Here’s a curated selection of businesses that shuttered this past month of June in San Francisco and beyond.
