160-year-old San Francisco restaurant the Old Clam House up for sale as owners retire
After the news late last month that 160-year-old Bayview restaurant the Old Clam House was on the market, owners Jerry Dal Bozzo and Dante Serafini have announced that they are retiring, as first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle (SFGATE and the San Francisco Chronicle are both owned by Hearst but operate independently of one another). The pair also own North Beach’s the Stinking Rose, which they are selling as well.
Both restaurants have remained shuttered since the beginning of the pandemic, so it will be up to a new buyer to revive them. Dal Bozzo told the Chronicle that their first choice of buyers are those who want to preserve the iconic establishments as is, and rehire some longtime staffers.
