The Waverly Inn is now George on Jane?

(But it's not really on George St. or Jane St.)

Anyone know the story behind this? Was there a change of ownership?

    Ted Danza's character George on Bored to Death buys a restaurant, the Waverly Inn this season.

      But that's on TV! =)

      Actually, I think you're right that it's some publicity stunt related to the show: http://ny.eater.com/archives/2011/09/...

      The staff doesn't seem to've changed, in any event.

        Yep, it's just a temporary thing. Sounds fun and they're serving a pretty tasty brunch menu. Nonetheless, I love Bored to Death so it's sort of a fun silly thing to have in the neighborhood.

        (P.S. it's Ted Danson.)
