City removes the curbside dining space at Eros on 2nd Avenue and 5th Street

This a follow-up to a post from Jan. 15... on Friday morning, the city removed the curbside dining structure from the Fifth Street side of Eros on the NE corner of Second Avenue. (Thank you, Eden, for the tip!) 

On Jan. 10, the Department of Transportation issued a "Termination" notice for the curbside space that ran the length of the Greek restaurant, which hasn't been open in more than five months.

Meanwhile, the indoor space remains dark. 

Eros took over for the diner the Kitchen Sink in September 2021 (same owners) ... management previously changed names from Moonstruck to the Kitchen Sink in the fall of 2015. 

The Eros website still notes that this location is "closed for renovations. Reopening TBA." We had not seen anyone inside the space since the restaurant closed in August. The "temporarily closed" sign is still on the front entrance.

City issues removal notice for the curbside dining structure at the currently-closed Eros

Photos by Steven

An item from earlier this week... Eros, the Greek restaurant on the NE corner of Fifth Street and Second Avenue, is entering its fifth month of what is billed as a temporary closure

Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation has noticed... and issued a "Termination" notice for the restaurant's lengthy curbside dining structure...
The DOT notice is dated Tuesday (Jan. 10). Eros had 24 hours to remove it from the Fifth Street side before the city did ... (it remains in place as of this morning, Jan. 15) ... 
We previously spotted a letter here from the DOT dated Sept. 6 requesting that ownership correct some deficiencies in the curbside dining structure.

Eros remains closed on 2nd Avenue

Eros has been dark since early August on the NE corner of Second Avenue and Fifth Street.

A "temporarily closed" sign has been on the front door. The Greek restaurant's website notes that this location is "closed for renovations. Reopening TBA."

We have not spotted anyone inside the space during this time either.
Through the months, various notices have been spotted inside the front door, like this letter from the DOT dated Sept. 6 requesting that ownership correct some deficiencies in the curbside dining structure on Fifth Street ...
And in October, someone smashed the front door, which remains this way today...
Eros took over for the diner the Kitchen Sink in September 2021 (same owners) ... management previously changed names from Moonstruck to the Kitchen Sink in the fall of 2015. 

Several Kitchen Sink fans have emailed us about the current state of the space, with the feeling that it won't return. There was a general consensus that people preferred the Kitchen Sink's reliable diner staples instead of more upscale Greek dishes.

H/T Steven!

Kitchen Sink goes Greek, emerges as Eros

In recent months, paper has covered the windows at Kitchen Sink, the diner on Second Avenue at Fifth Street. 

The dining room appeared to be closed and under renovation, but they were serving in the curbside seats as well as offering takeout and deliveries. 

On Friday, new signage arrived (thanks to Steven for the photos!) ... and the place is now going as Eros, a Greek restaurant. (Same owners, we're told.) And the signage is identical to the Eros on Third Avenue in Murray Hill.
Not sure at the moment what the menu will be here — hopefully, some of the reliable diner fare will remain. The mostly renovated dining room is not yet open. The bar remains, though the TV sets have been removed.

The owners previously changed names from Moonstruck to the Kitchen Sink in the fall of 2015.
