New, 8 comments

The Observer's Chris Shott sets the scene at today's meeting of potential bidders eying Tavern on the Green in Central Park: "'Some big players,' noted dapper Capitale owner Seth Greenberg, as he peered around the room at the competition on hand. Smith & Wollensky founder Alan Stillman and Boathouse owner Dean Poll also attended, alongside representatives of Giuseppe Cipriani, Donald Trump and Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, among others. Michael Desiderio, the restaurant's current chief operating officer, was there on behalf of the late Warner LeRoy's family, which has operated the historic 25,000-square-foot eatery since 1974." [NYO]
