Susanna Foo To Close In June

The Saturday Inquirer contained a big surprise. Susanna Foo is expected to close on Walnut Street in August June.

65-year old owner Susanna Foo is selling the building and closing the business. She says the closure isn’t related to the economy but rather a want to work a bit less and concentrate on teaching cooking classes and doting on her two granddaughters.

Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen, which is run by her son Gabriel will continue to operate and Foo will be involved.

Susanna Foo has been a mainstay on Walnut Street’s restaurant row since it opened in 1987.

UPDATE: Closing date has been moved up to June 13th.
