Italian Bakery-Restaurant Pan Bon Closes Up Shop in Little Italy

Is the neighborhood not always a sure thing?


Several notices came in via the tipline regarding the quiet shutter of Pan Bon on Kettner Boulevard. The all-day Italian eatery, which spanned a soaring 10,300-square-foot space that encompassed a bakery, sit-down restaurant, and multiple food stations, opened in Early 2015 in the Ariel Suites building, which also houses Bracero and sits on Little Italy's newest restaurant row.

Pan Bon's last Facebook posting was made on September 7 and as of this writing, an official statement about the closure has not been released. There's no word yet about what will go into the site or the still-empty adjacent space that at one point was slated for Hanson's Market, though there have been unconfirmed rumors of interest from a big-box store brand.
