Bay Area mini-chain closes its last brick-and-mortar restaurant
Dosa, the once-popular South Indian restaurant with multiple locations throughout the Bay Area, has permanently closed its last remaining brick-and-mortar, as first reported by Berkeleyside. Dosa by DOSA, the restaurant’s fast-casual iteration at 2301 Broadway Avenue in Oakland, is no more.
In September 2020, Dosa permanently closed its last San Francisco outpost on Fillmore Street. Co-owner Anjan Mitra cited the challenges of operating a restaurant during the COVID-19 pandemic paired with the impending end of their lease as the reasons behind the closure. Back in 2019, Dosa closed its original Valencia Street location and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy soon after. Mitra confirmed the final restaurant’s closure to SFGATE, but did not respond to a request for further details by publication time.
