Is Tavern on the Green doomed? First, critics called the layout classist. Then, after Jim Caiola and David Salama from Philadelphia’s Beau Monde scored the coveted job, people thought it was because of nepotism. Now the guys are low on cash. “Their backer is not coming up with as much [cash] as they expected, so they are looking for extra funds,” their rep confirmed to the Post. The city’s already spending $10 million to restore the buildings and add a new outdoor terrace. According to sources, Tavern on the Green’s still on track to open late this year. But the ghosts of Taverns past are definitely haunting the reboot. [Earlier, Earlier, NYP]
