Twitter Facebook Email Print While it has seemed that the opening of MP Taverna on Ditmars has taken a while, we are certain that they are opening tomorrow, Monday, April 22. That’s because we saw this sign taped on their front windows, after hearing about it from both a user on Astorians.com and from a tweet by Adam Kuban.

Here’s the building as it goes along 33rd Street – to me it seems to go quite a ways back. We look forward to checking it out this week and will report back on our experience. If you go soon, please let us know what you think!
