The Observer pens a revealing piece on Tavern on the Green, chronicling the factors that made Dean Poll's acquisition of the legendary eatery possible: "Eager as he was to establish a monopoly over Central Park's most lucrative restaurants, spanning the Boathouse on the eastern side and Tavern on the Green on the west, Mr. Poll was also something of the last man standing, abetted in his efforts by the LeRoy family's own dysfunction, the torpor of the Parks Department and a hospitality industry reeling from the recession."
