Tavern on the Green to Reopen with a Local and More Affordable Menu

The New York City Parks Department has announced that Philadelphia-based firm Emerald Green Group will spearhead the renovation of iconic Central Park eatery Tavern on the Green . After being closed to the public for two years, the bucolic park-side restaurant known for decades as a celebrity and events hotspot for power lunches, weddings , and over-the-top parties is poised to reopen as a smaller, more rustic cafe with a delicious sustainable menu that will include local delicacies like squid from Montauk  and Brooklyn’s own Mast Brothers  chocolate.
Emerald Green Group fought long and hard to take over the Tavern design , beating out dozens of other firms with their downsizing plan. The new design may look smaller, but will still fit 300 people inside, another 300 outside, and will even feature a take-out window! Chef Katy Sparks , who has been with the Tavern since the 1980s has been keeping busy the past two years consulting city restaurants  on sustainable menus and practices, perfectly preparing for the reopening of her old stomping grounds. Her new menu will include all kinds of delicious locally-sourced foods at more reasonable prices, so the Tavern will be a place almost anyone can enjoy. New designs are still in the works, but we can’t wait to see what becomes of our favorite Central Park food spot.
