File this under developing, but a look at the latest Community Board 2 agenda indicates that Emil Varda (or Warda, as it's spelled on the docket), the maître d' and partner of the Waverly Inn, will plead his case during the October 13 board meeting for a liquor license at 285 West 12th Street. If that address sounds familiar, it’s because it belongs to the late, great Beatrice Inn. Cobi Levy claimed the space earlier this year, but aside from its sign disappearing, there hasn’t been much progress at the address, and Levy now tells us, “I decided to focus on the opening of Niko before pursuing another project.” So will Varda be joined by Graydon Carter here, or is this a solo gig? We’re asking around and will let you know what our inn-vestigative reporting turns up. Elsewhere in Beatrice news, the Tribeca Citizen reports that onetime Bea owner Matt Abramcyk’s plan to renovate the former Delphi space have crossed the hurdle of being approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
