John Frank gone? What happened?

Rochelle McCune | Jan 7, 200204:55 PM     17

Yesterday, after we rolled out of the chowhound dim sum fest, we went to the 24th Street Cheese shop to pick up a few goodies for a Sunday evening gathering at our house. We drove by John Frank (Market & Church). The name on the building was painted over. The windows were papered. On the paper was "On January 11th, we will be HOME".

What's up with that? When did this happen? I thought John Frank was successful, it always seemed busy.

Has anyone heard any rumors about this supposed new restaurant "HOME"? Who opens a new restaurant in the slowest month of the year in a recession? Hell, I'm going on Friday, if only to gawk.
