Poor Roseville

On August 13, 2010, the Roseville restaurant in Point Loma closed down. People who called to make reservations were told that the closure was due to "a gas leak."

During a call placed to Roseville owner George Riffle on August 21, he said that he was working with his insurance adjuster after they found their issue with their gas leak. He also stated, "Where your table would be, there is a big hole in the ground" and asked, "Could I direct you to another restaurant?" When asked when the restaurant would be reopening, Mr. Riffle said, "We are guessing Monday, optimistically...but most likely Tuesday, realistically, we will be ready for business and will be updating our website."

As of Tuesday, August 24, the site was up for lease, with a large sign in a front window. As of August 25, there is no mention of the closure on the Roseville website.

Wow, that architecture is right out of the fifties, shame it's over with. It reminds me of a series that Lileks did many years ago...

You will thoroughly enjoy thumbing through this, especially if you found a warm spot in your heart for places like poor Roseville. And Lileks is one of the most astute human beings on the internet, no one better to bring this slice of Americana to the masses.

I love mid-century modern architecture, RFG. Thanks for that link, cool stuff! There are lots of neat places in Point Loma that represent Tiki culture as well.

Sorry your birthday dinner was not to be, Grantie! That's a bummer! Hopefully you've gotten something to eat by now. :)

LOVE the link, refried. I had to quit after half an hour. How many ARE there? The interior of Emil's was supercool, in particular. And when was the last time you heard a restaurant called an "eating place?"

In keeping with the "then & now" theme, here's what my dad's old grocery store looks like now. (This will either work or be a mess. Maybe some of both):

Looks like they're busy!

Yep, foiled again! I did eat. We wound up on the outdoor patio of The Red Sails, and they were having 1/2 price bottles of wine that night. It was a good night.

There is a trick to getting your links to work. I have not mastered it yet, but if someone wants to share again how to do it...
