Mathieu Palombino Loves the Simplicity at Taverna Kyclades

New, 3 comments

New York City is home to a lot of restaurants, more than any rational human being can ever hope to visit. Among that number are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.


Our next pick comes from Motorino chef and owner Mathieu Palombino.

"I've been going to Taverna Kyclades in Queens. It is a Greek restaurant, the simplest place there is and they grill whole sea bass the way I like. It is cheap, the house wine tastes good, the potatoes are fantastic, the Greek salad is unstoppable, and they have a baked custard with syrup soaked phyllo that is served warm that probably did not have the time to cool from the oven because they are always busy. It's great."
