Javier’s Closing

Javier’s Closing

The Business Courier is reporting that Javier’s, on Walnut Street, is closing on Friday, February 26. They opened for dinner a couple of years ago, but aside from a handful of times, I never actually saw them open for dinner– which would be the only […]

Mini-Review: Nicola’s

Review: In-N-Out Burger, San Francisco
