Another one bites the dust. It's been a big year for restaurant closings thanks to massive Manhattan rent hikes -- Union Square Cafe and wd~50 face impending shutters, and today brings word that Jimmy Bradley's beloved Tribeca restaurant The Harrison (355 Greenwich Street, 212-274-9310) will close after the holidays; it's being pushed out because it won't be able to afford the lease once this term expires.

Kashkaval Garden
Kashkaval Cheese Market and Wine Bar (856 Ninth Avenue, 212-581-8282) has held down its slot of Hell's Kitchen for 16 years, becoming a neighborhood gathering spot for its dairy emporium, small bites, and vino in the process. But its landlord has opted not to renew its lease, and so at the end of the month, it'll shutter for good. Meanwhile, Kashkaval Garden (852 Ninth Avenue), which owners Daniel Assaf and Corey Samuels opened last summer next door to Kashkaval (but under a different landlord), will absorb some of what its older sibling did so well as it expands into an enclosed patio.

Via Picnic
Rumors were circulating that Picnic (117 Second Avenue), the Southern-inflected American restaurant that opened just a few months back in the East Village, closed up shop a week or so ago (that the phone rings incessantly and that EV Grieve posted a rent listing for the address seem pretty convincing evidence, too). We now get confirmation from two people with knowledge of the restaurant that the rumors are true -- Picnic has packed it in.

DIY food- and beverage-related crafts have soared in popularity in the past several years, and we'll bet you can think of at least one or two friends who have at least flirted with a homebrewing hobby. Though equipment-heavy and time-consuming, there are enough people making their own beer in this city to fuel a number of loose organizations as well as a Brooklyn homebrew tour, a private living room crawl that nets the brew-curious a chance to try some of the borough's best home-crafted ales and lagers.
