This was a shocker.
The Nob Hill Grille, which has been a fixture at the corner of Hyde and Pine for the last ten years, and normally is quite busy (when I had walked by earlier in the week, it was filled with customers) has, without warning, closed.
A couple (not pictured) who were expecting to find an open restaurant were as surprised as I was.
“Maybe they had a huge rent increase,” the man surmised. “That's why they closed right before August 1.”
Whatever the reason, the closure was unexpected.
