Tavern on the Green...
What room would you recommend reserving (the crystal room looks great)? I'd like to try it cus I've heard so much about it. Also, any other great trendy restaurants that I should try?
if you scan through reviews on the board you'll find that TOTG is generally known for having a pretty space with really really bad food. If some of the dishes are passable, they are definitely not a good value and you can eat a far better meal at any number of NYC places for the same price or less. I would recommend having a drink there though as it can be very pretty.
Can you be more specific about your budget and food preferences? Are you willing to go to any neighborhood or do you want to stay in a certain area? Post back with that info and you'll get tons of responses!
yeah, totg is more or less universally hated by new yorkers... i do like those outdoor hanging lamps though.
Would only go to TOTG if my parents were visiting and paying. Wait, don't remind me. Think brain-bleach to get rid of such an experience.
When I moved to NYC, I actually thought that TOTG was indeed the best of the best. It has a brilliant PR department and it is widely considered to be among Manhattan's best. Outside of Manhattan that is. : )
The good news is that you've come to the right place for good recs. You can get a list of trendy restaurants in almost any price range with GREAT food as well. Lots of negativity about TOTG. Maybe too many of us have felt ripped off/unsatisfied there. Let us know more about what you like and the reccs will follow.
