    Castro LGBTQ Cultural District Unveils Progressive Pride Flag at Fisch & Flore

    The staff and advisory board members of the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District donated a progressive pride flag to Fisch & Flore, located at 2298 Market Street at Noe. It was unveiled on Friday, June 7, at 4 pm with speakers who included Mayor London Breed and Senator Scott Wiener.

    The restaurant is in the space that was previously Café Flore, which closed in 2019. The newly refurbished restaurant represents a substantial investment by the new owner, Serhat Zorlu, making the space ADA accessible and modernizing the restaurant’s features and menu. Since this is a key business in the neighborhood, the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District is keen to support the endeavor, especially now that it is open for lunch and dinner service.

    “I’m thankful for the donated flag by the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District. The flag signals that we love the community and are eager to be a fabulous part of this great neighborhood,” said Zorlu, who added, “I’m very excited that we have community support.”

    Tina Aguirre, Cultural District Director, shared, “I want to make sure we give love to Fisch & Flore because it is so welcoming to us as LGBTQ community members. Donating this progressive pride flag is important to the district’s work to center LGBTQ people, places, and culture and that includes supporting economic vitality in the neighborhood. We are proud that our friends at Fisch & Flore see us and welcome us. And we’re happy that this space is open for business and has such delicious food!”
