News Elsewhere: Tavern on the Green in Manhattan Is Open Once Again
Four years after closing its doors, a Manhattan restaurant that was once the highest grossing dining spot in America has reopened, though it is apparently a much different spot from what it used to be.
The New York Post is reporting that Tavern on the Green is open for business again, with Jim Caiola and David Salama of the Emerald Green Group running the place and Katy Sparks heading up the kitchen. The article says that the space has been completely renovated, though only the interior rooms are open to diners for now, with the huge outdoor areas being at least a month away from being ready. The Post indicates that the new version of the dining spot features seasonal New American fare, with both small and large plates offered.
The original Tavern on the Green shut down at the end of 2009 after being in business since the 1930s, with the space actually turning into a visitor center and food court for awhile before becoming a restaurant once again. The dining spot sits at the western edge of Central Park near W 67th Street. in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
