If Tavern on the Green Reopens, Crystal Room May Go


Looks like Jennifer LeRoy has gotten over the fact that the city chose Dean Poll to operate Tavern on the Green: Now that Poll has backed out, she says she’ll be among the restaurateurs (others may include Donald Trump, the Ciprianis, and Seth Greenberg of Capitale) throwing her hat in the ring when the city reopens the proposal process (possibly later this year). Apparently having to auction off the drapes didn’t sour LeRoy on running a restaurant; she says she can come up with investors. Her proposal calls for the demolition and rebuilding of the Crystal Room (her dad’s handiwork), something the city seems open to.
