so crazy! I was just thinking about this because Ghostbusters was on last night. I'm so glad I got to go there with my dad and all my sisters on a daddy daughter trip, it was so beautiful

Sounds good to me. Tavern had bad food and was an eyesore tourist trap. Shake Shack has great food and everyone can get some use of it.

Have you ever eaten at TOTG? Lovely atmosphere but terrible food. Shake Shake really is better.

For everyone who's dissing the old restaurant's food; Trump is thinking of buying the place and rehauling the menu so.. he'll probably get a better menu in.

tavern's food might have been bad
but the place was beautiful, the stained glass, the garden, and they had a small, nice bar.
luchows was beautiful too, and had awful food.
places like this will never be duplicated. can't be.
tourist trap? half the city is a tourist trap.
and i don't understand how folks can think shake shack is good. i found it to serve one of the most dreadful burgers around. nice idea, food in pretty park. for the prices at shake shack the food could be much better.
if this is what bloomberg thinks we need our city is more trouble than i thought.

Yeah, TOTG was a tourist trap with expensive and rather marginal food... Yet it was an iconic part of NY for some 75 years ... John Lennon had his 38th birthday party there!

Uh, anyway... I'm really not trying to romanticize TOTG... Still, I'm not a fan of the ongoing Shake Shacking of America and Bloomberg's vision for NYC. Is this really the best idea for the space?

The lights at Christmas time at Tavern on the Green were spectacular. The place had a nice atmosphere and so-so food. It was an historical slice of New York and a restaurant. The Shake Shack is a hamburger stand. And Bloomberg is an idiot.

Yeah, come on...
More Donald Trump! That's what this city needs!

BOOO! small, high quality, establishments that everybody can afford and partake.

Awesome J M!
That URL looks delicious itself!
I'll add it to my bookmarks, because I don't have enough blogs where I can read comments from whiney little bitches, moaning and groaning about shit.

Shake Shack was 'exploring' the possibility of leasing the 1st Street Rat Park (32 E. 1st) last year- but the local residents nixed it...watch what happens after BMW Guggenheim finishes tidying up that space next summer...Shake Shack redux...

I don't care whether the food is good or bad - we need to put a stop to private restaurants in PUBLIC parks, Bloomberg is already allowing holiday markets and 'gourmet' food carts. He's willing to sell off our public park land to the highest bidder.

F*CK SHAKE SHACK
F*CK BLOOMBERG

He should be forced to sit in a shake shack for 7 straight days being force-fed extra-rare burgers by fat midwestern tourists.
