Donald Trump and Tavern on the Green

Donald Trump may have only just announced his intent to take over the now-shuttered Tavern on the Green a few days ago, but the real estate tycoon is already laying out his vision for the staple Central Park eatery, according to the New York Post. If he is given the reins at the Tavern, Trump said he would demand that the now-demolished Crystal Room dining area be rebuilt, under a new design. “Without a new Crystal Room, you’d have 30 seats,” Trump said of the restaurant, in which he would invest upward of $20 million. Trump said that while he’d want to build the dining section up to the same size as the original, he would likely choose a different design from the former Crystal Room, which had been derided by many architectural critics. Trump has reportedly met with design firm Beyer Blinder Belle to discuss a design that would incorporate the existing structure’s brick facade. [Post]
