W Chef Signs on for New Iteration of Tavern on the Green/Park

New, 1 comment

Even though new chosen Tavern on the Green operator Dean Poll has yet to sign a lease on the space, Gael Greene reports that the new iteration of the restaurant at least has a chef. Le Cirque alum, chef Michael Wurster of the W Hotel chain signed a contract to man the stoves when, if ever, the historic space reopens. Of course, hurdles remain. Poll still has to come to an agreement with the restaurant's union, a court has to decide if the restaurant can keep the Tavern name, and the whole place has to be refurbished. Wurster probably isn't holding his breath to hear about his start date.
