BROOKLYN - A beloved Italian eatery in Park Slope is closing its doors after 25 years in business.

Loyal customers say they're sad and upset to see Aunt Suzie's go. The owner, Irene Lore, says she made the decision to call its quits due to increased taxes and inspections, and because she'd like to retire.

Area residents will have until Jan. 1 to stop in for one last meal.
