Posted By Molly Cotter On October 12, 2012 @ 1:00 pm In Food,Manhattan | No Comments
Central Park’s Tavern on the Green  is on its way to re-opening with a brand new look and locavore menu. After being closed for nearly two years, the restaurant has assembled a dream team of chefs and designers to revamp the New York haunt, and a first draft of its new sustainable and more affordable menu was revealed this week. Read on to see some of the dishes we can’t wait to try.
The new Tavern will be run by Jim Caiola and David Salama from Philadelphia’s Beau Monde/ L’Etage , and the kitchen will be managed by former Tavern chef, Katy Sparks . The iconic restaurant, known for decades as a celebrity and events hot spot for power lunches, weddings, and over-the-top parties, will soon feature sweet local eats and delicacies from Montauk  squid to grass-fed beef and delicious farm-to-table greens.
The new menu, which is much more affordable than back in the day, includes something for everyone. Small plates like duck liver, blistered citrus salad, bruschetta, Hudson Valley foie gras, and crimini mushrooms will cater to those who just want a snack, while larger plates feature grilled leeks, heritage breed pork chops, lamb ragout, and Vermont quail. The restaurant’s signature chimichurri sauce  will accompany many of the dishes and desserts will range from butterscotch pudding to mouth-watering Mast Brothers chocolate . While it is only a first draft, the delicious menu is strongly based in organic, local and sustainable foods and cooking techniques that we cannot wait to try!
