Under Construction: 227 York St

Neighbors are opposing plans for a second restaurant development on York Street. The new restaurant would be adjacent to Outliers.

Residents are concerned that another restaurant/bar will be too much, too soon, for the neighborhood, which was once disturbed by unruly, late-night crowds at the former Popeye’s Ice House bar. That notorious tavern, which had the tail of an airplane sticking out of its roof, closed in 2008 after repeated clashes with neighbors.
