Tavern on the Green will Keep its Name When/If it Reopens

The Times brings word that a judge has finally made a ruling on the hotly disputed and drawn out case of the Tavern on the Green name. According to today's decision, the city is the rightful owner of the name, even though owner Warner LeRoy trademarked it decades ago. That means a) the name will stay with the building, b) they can scrap the pathetic "Tavern on the Park" back up plan, and c) the creditors of the restaurant now get squat (the name was valued at $19 million). Again, the new operator, Dean Poll, has yet to sign either a lease with the city or an agreement with the labor union.
