DNAinfo reports that Beast, the wine bar, tapas restaurant, and neighborhood hangout at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Bergen Street in Prospect Heights will close after service on Sunday night. Chef and partner Debra Bicknese tells the site that the "closing is voluntary" and not related to rent or lease issues, adding that she is in talks to sell the business to a new operator who’ll keep the space going as a bar. A farewell party is planned for Sunday night. [DNAinfo]
