Central Park’s Landmark Tavern On The Green Is Reopening Later This Month

Another iconic Central Park dining establishment is reopening!

After the Central Park Boathouse Restaurant reopened last month, the landmark Tavern on the Green restaurant is following suit. This picturesque historic restaurant is reopening on Thursday, April 29 after more than a year of closure.

The restaurant announced the news on their website and social media pages, saying “It’s been a long and challenging year and we’ve missed our valued guests, our community and our staff, and can’t wait to welcome you back.”

The opening dinner will also welcome live music in the Courtyard, plus full lunch service and their “to-go” widow will reopen Friday, April 30.

They also listed a number of new COVID-19 safety measures, which include:

  • HEPA filters in all of our HVAC & air filtration systems
  • Temperatures checks upon arrival
  • Daily health screening & temperature checks for staff
  • Staff will wear face masks at all times
  • Guests will be required to wear face masks unless seated at their table, eating and drinking
  • Upgraded POS system to make contactless menu and payment options available via QR code. Single use menus will be available upon request.
  • Tables are spaced 6 feet apart and tables and chairs and thoroughly disinfected after each seating
  • Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the restaurant and available to all guests

The historic Tavern on the Green dates back to 1870, which the space was used to house the sheep that grazed in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow. It became a restaurant in 1934, where it has been serving guests ever since (besides a brief closure in 2009).

Reservations can be made on their website or by calling 212-877-8684.
