Neighbors complaining about the trash at newly opened Taverna Kyclades
The East Village outpost of Astoria favorite Taverna Kyclades opened for business last week at 228 First Ave. By most accounts, people are very happy to have the chance to eat their Greek fare in the neighborhood.
However, some neighbors here between East 13th Street and East 14th Street are already grumbling about the restaurant's trash.
Here is one claim by an affected party, who sent along the photos:
"They dump really stinky fish trash not in front of their restaurant but outside of neighboring business properties and next door to the local street fruit market seller ... causing horrible stenches."
Neighbors have called 311 to complain, though it is not clear if they have reached out directly to restaurant management to resolve the issue.
