Tavern on the Green Hit With Federal Discrimination Charges

Tavern on the Green just got hit with major charges — and unlike the accusations made in recent years against the likes of Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Daniel Boulud, it’s not just some irate ex-employees doing the talking. It’s the Feds. According to Crain’s, the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission charges them with “severe and pervasive sexual, racial and national origin harassment,” and for leaning on employees who complained against it. It’s a major step, and nothing the famously profitable, famously mediocre eatery can laugh off.
