Last time the Beatrice Inn was closed down, owner Matt Abramcyk told us that he was renovating to address noise complaints. In the case of his other bar, Smith and Mills, Abramcyk is taking the offensive by suing and attempting to convince a court to evict an upset neighbor who, from the Posts description of her, seems to be as diminutive as the restaurant. A lawsuit claims the woman has tried to prevent construction, barred patrons from entering, screamed inside of the restaurant, and smashed glasses and bottles and not in a fun, Siberia way. Will other bar owners invoke a similar Good riddance, neighbor policy? Were looking at you, Death & Co.
