Restaurant notes: Sayonara, Haru

The 6-year-old Philly outpost of the New York-bred Japanese restaurant/lounge Haru, in a former bank building at Third and Chestnut Streets in Old City, neatly ended the month of April by closing after business Saturday.

The closing has thwarted the people who bought $35 dinners-for-two deals recently through Daily Candy. They were supposedly redeemable through May 5.

Farewell, Haru.

Update: Daily Candy says it will issue refunds, as long as customers contact DailyCandy customer service (info is noted on the voucher) before the deal's expiration date, midnight on Thursday, May 5th.

In other fallout-from-closing news: Anyone stuck with a gift certificate to Franco's Trattoria in East Falls, which closed last month, can use it at Johnny Mananas nearby. Sherman Properties owns both.
