Neighbors Reminisce About the Beatrice of Yore

As the quest continues for “the new Beatrice,” the old Beatrice is well on its way toward becoming a tapas restaurant. Cobi Levy went before Community Board 2 last night to present his plans for the space: “modestly priced,” 110-120 seats, one bar, open ’til 2 or 3.

Levy and the neighbors also exchanged fond memories of bygone days, reports Eater:

After a bit more back and forth–where the neighbors got another opportunity to reminisce on the “nightmare” and “hell” of the Bea–Levy again said he lived and worked in the neighborhood and wanted to be part of the solution. He wants the Beatrice to be a neighborhood restaurant again, not like before when the kitchen was probably used as a drug den.
