Nail, Coffin, Beatrice

The Beatrice Inn–“The Beatrice Inn Restaurant,” per its sign–is becoming an actual restaurant. Charles owner Cobi Levy has bought the much-lamented club’s former home, and plans to open a dining establishment. He’ll be going before the community board tomorrow, reports Eater, and seems unlikely to face many problems: his two previous restaurants “were pushed through without major complications.”

One hopes that New York’s nightclub-rumormongering community can remain committed to “new Beatrice” gossip, despite what will surely be a blow to morale.
