What happen to Le Petit Robert (SF)

This is one of my favorite brunch spots in the city. Does anyone know what happened and why they closed =(. This is the one off Polk Street in the lower Russian Hill area.

    They quote one of the owners as saying "We want out of the restaurant business," Lefort says. "Our core business is really the cafe-bakeries."

    1. Agreed. I had a lovely dinner-date there some time ago. It has remained a lovely place in my memory. An evening or so ago I went out for a walk along Polk Street, and was startled and dismayed to see its windows papered over. The implication of rworange's post is that they closed by choice, which is a consolation.
