Tosca Café sells to New Yorkers, with a little help from Sean Penn

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

The uncertain future of the 92-year-old North Beach bar whose owner Jeannette Etheredge has been involved in a noisy feud with landlord Roger Forbes, just got some clarity. It’s been sold to the group behind three popular New York restaurants, including the Michelin star-rated Spotted Pig. San Francisco Business Times, which broke the news on its website last night, says the lease is for 10 years.

Etheridge, apparently, will stay on. Inside Scoop SF has the backstory on how the sale came about after actor and Tosca regular Sean Penn got New York restaurateur Ken Friedman interested.
