Food Carts To Set Up Shop In Front Of Tavern On The Green
The carts will be located in the area that originally housed Tavern on the Green's Crystal Room. The restaurant was originally expected to reopen this year but the new manager, New York restaurateur Dean Poll, could not agree to terms with Local 6, the labor union representing Tavern's 400 former employees and so his contract with the parks department was terminated. At this point it's unclear whether or not the parks department plans to open up a new request for proposal for the site and start the whole process again. Until then however, the new food carts will turn Tavern on the Green back into a dining destination for this willing to dine alfresco.
