Welcome to my mini New York City series called “N Y C-eries!”
This article of the series is on one of my favorite New York restaurants, particularly for breakfast / brunch, called Tavern on the Green! Located in the heart of Central Park, Tavern on the Green can be found at Central Park, W 67th St, New York, NY 10023. Tavern on the Green was built as a sheep house in the 1880’s and became a restaurant in 1934. Tavern has undergone renovations over time, but the currently operating restaurant was reopened in 2014. Their menus change among the seasons, and brunch is only served on the weekends.
One of the reasons I love Tavern on the Green is because of the glass-wall views of Central Park, and the way the natural light brings personality and good radiance into your dining experience. There is also a beautiful outdoor seating area, lit with café style lighting, that is open during warm seasons. Tavern is used for many receptions and wedding activities, and can be seen in several New York movies, such as New York, I Love You, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Hitch, and more.
You can check out Tavern on the Green’s website to learn more about their history, make reservations, see press articles and photos, and read their current menus here: https://www.tavernonthegreen.com/location/tavern-on-the-green/
