        What are you going to order? The $34 hake?

        1. re: AubWah

          at $34, the hake is the second most expensive dish on the menu. what are you getting at?

          1. re: coasts

            I'm suggesting the menu bores me to tears. But it is sure to please the bus loads of tourists that will be crowding the dining room.

            1. re: AubWah

              i'm certain they'll miss you and your local dollars, regardless.

              1. re: AubWah

                Equally, it may reopen that silly Philly/NYC schism []. Still, I'm guessing, given recent events, that 'croquettes hippiques' will not be on the menu there -freerange & locavore though they could be.

                1. re: AubWah

                  What do you feel is missing from the menu? What do you suggest they serve that would not "bore you to tears"?

                  It looks more sophisticated than what I would expect to see if they were trying to appeal to "busloads of tourists". The prices are typical of upscale Manhattan restaurants.

          2. This is the best news I've heard in a long time. I'm actually surprised this is the first I'm hearing of the re-opening. Tavern in it's later years became nothing more than an ala' carte banquette facility, there was nothing special about the food, it was mass produced and nothing to take note of. However, there was NO PLACE in the world to dine during the holidays than Tavern. The entire place turned into a winter/Christmas wonderland and I have soooo many happy memories of taking my kids there every holiday season.

            Their lobster bisque was about the best I've ever had and it has been the inspiration for my own.

            I look forward to bringing the family back. Happy News, although I don't see lobster bisque on their new menu.

            1. It opened last night--did anyone go? I have reservations on May 13 and would love to get your thoughts.

              1. So, has anyone tried it? I'm thinking of going this week but hesitant because I can't find any reviews.

                  Well the Yelpers have been at it.....
                  Make of that what you will.

                  1. re: Ttrockwood

                    Thanks. The widely divergent reports are why I don't find Yelp of much use, but overall it seems like there are serious issues with both food and service. I will wait for more reliable reports before risking it.

                    1. re: rrems

                      Same here, i take any yelp reviews with a grain of salt. It may be more significant that no one from CH has been yet- that kinda tells me something in and of itself.....
