MoMo’s restaurant, the East Bay offshoot of a San Francisco Giants fan favorite, has struck out in Walnut Creek.
Employees of the Golden Bear Restaurant Group on Monday confirmed the closing.
It’s the second shutdown of a Giants-themed restaurant at this 1444 N. California Blvd. site. McCovey’s — with all of its baseball memorabilia — had been in business here for 11 years.
Perhaps an Oakland A’s motif would be a better bet at this site?
Entrepreneurs Peter and Janet Osborne of the Golden Bear group opened this 235-seat MoMo’s American Bar & Grill in early 2017, almost 20 years after launching the original in San Francisco in 1998 near what was to become today’s Oracle Park.
That restaurant remains open at 760 Second St., as do the group’s other San Francisco properties, including the Mission Rock Resort, Pete’s Tavern and Pedro’s Cantina.
The Walnut Creek MoMo’s no longer appears on the restaurant group’s website, but no reason was given for the East Bay shutdown.
