Farmerbrown, the city’s most celebrated black-owned restaurant, closed Sunday after 13 years in San Francisco’s Tenderloin.

Chef-owner Jay Foster said that because of rising rent and labor costs, restaurateurs are increasingly favoring smaller spaces friendly to counter service. “Sadly, we were busy as we ever were, but operations and labor for large formats are increasingly challenging in San Francisco,” Foster said.
