Another change for Mission Street: Guatemalan restaurant getting the boot

Even ‘palaces’ are down on their luck in the Mission.

Guatemalan restaurant El Palacio Latino, at 2240 Mission Street, has been asked to pack up. A notice taped to the restaurant’s window and signed by landlord Armando Molina says El Palacio Latino’s lease has expired, won’t be renewed and that the restaurant must be out by Dec. 1.

Between 18th and 19th streets, the restaurant appeared to be under construction when Capp Street Crap stopped by this morning. The security gate was closed and bags of cement were piled near the entrance.

While no one was at the restaurant to comment on the situation, public records suggest problems with the space.

According to Department of Building Inspection records, there’s an active permit to do repairs required by the San Francisco Health Department including to the kitchen wall and floor and ‘rodent proofing.’ The permit also covers dry rot repairs and fixing water-damaged walls.
