Having lasted longer than any of its other locations, San Francisco’s last remaining Rosamunde Sausage Grill will close its doors in November after a 13-year run.
The Mission District’s ultimate beer-and-a-sausage spot struggled to rebound after the pandemic, as Mission Local reported.
In an Instagram post on Friday, Rosamunde bid farewell to fans, noting that Castro beer bar Willkommen will still serve its sausages.
An employee confirmed the closure to The Standard and said it would occur no later than Nov. 21, but was not authorized to discuss other details.
Opening in 2010, Rosamunde was part of a post-Great Recession crop of fast-casual places in and around the Mission District as that neighborhood was winning international acclaim as a dining destination. Fans were drawn to its crisp, snappy sausages in thick buns loaded with tons of spicy condiments, its wide variety of beers and its affordable prices.
A location in the Lower Haight next to famed beer bar Toronado closed in 2019, while outposts in Oakland and Brooklyn wound down during the pandemic.
The Mission location’s unusual, diagonal-oriented interior owes its shape to the former railroad right-of-way on which the property sits. Nearby, the 24th Street BART Station has been the site of controversies over illicit vending and a general perception of disorder.
