Bayside residents can expect a new eatery serving authentic Greek food to open up on a bustling commercial strip in the next couple of weeks.
Taverna Kyclades, a restaurant already serving Greek dishes and fresh seafood at locations in Astoria and Manhattan, is expected to open to the public on Bell Boulevard by the end of the month, according to an employee at the Astoria location.
The restaurant will be located at 39-28/30 Bell Blvd., the spacious former home of Italian eatery Il Borgo. It’s the latest addition to a number of Mediterranean restaurants now operating on Bell Boulevard, including Avli Cafe and Grill and Maria’s Mediterranean Seafood and Grill, both of which are located a block north of the new Taverna Kyclades.
At the Bayside location, Taverna Kyclades diners can expect to find similar menu offerings to its Ditmars Boulevard and East Village locations. “From the land,” you can find lamb chops, Greek-style hamburgers, rib-eye steaks and various kebabs. “From the sea,” dine on Mediterranean sea bass, red snapper, grilled swordfish, scallops and more.
The Astoria and Manhattan eateries also feature extensive wine and drink lists, as well as various appetizers, including stuffed clams, grilled octopus and spicy feta dip.
Owners updating residents on the status of construction at the new Bayside location on social media said they were “almost there” on Dec. 2.
