Yesterday Mayor Bloomberg weighed in on Donald Trumps bid to revive Tavern on the Green, saying the city hasnt decided whether there will be a restaurant there again, but I suspect there will be. Maybe itll be a small one, which might fit in a little better in terms of todays needs. His explanation, per a video on the Posts site: When Tavern on the Green was first built there were not a lot of restaurants and people were afraid to go around the city. We live in a different world today: We have 20,000 restaurants and lots and lots of neighborhoods. We dont have very many restaurants in parks and well have to see. After a year well take a look at it, in terms of what to do.
Meanwhile, Steve Cuozzo thinks Bloomberg is in a pickle more delicious than anything from the gourmet food trucks in the former Tavern courtyard, since hes cozy with Peter Ward, the union leader Trump has struck a deal with, and yet letting Trump revive the place from the ashes would embarrass him as the person who put the space in limbo in the first place.
