Tavern on Green: The New Monk’s?

As I have written before, I adore my local neighorhood haunt, Tavern on Green. As you may also know, I love Monk’s. Rumors has it that Tavern will be closing it’s doors for a little while to re-open as Monk’s 2. While I would be sad to see the place that I’ve known and loved my entire time in the city close, a version of one of my all-time favorite places practically around the corner? Heaven, I tell you. Anyone heard any confirmed reports of this?

    I just confirmed that Tavern is sold, but that they are waiting on some legal things to be sorted out before closing their doors. I was unable to confirm whether it is to the owner’s of Monk’s or not, but the selling price was $1 million for the restaurant and the apartments upstairs.

    I heard something about that too, I think it was in one of the Michael Klein’s recent Table Talk columns.

    More than just a rumor, it’s happening. Tavern on Green is remaining open until the final paperwork for the liquor license goes through. And they close the doors and the Monks people come in. They’re expecting to be open this spring.

    I miss Cuvee Notredame (closed a few years ago – 17th and Green). I worked there in college and they had awesome beer and food. A lot of great places seem to close! Oh well…

    oooh, i wonder what it will be. if the food and beer is half as good as monk’s i’m totally there. we could also use something to draw some of the overcrowding away from the monk’s-nodding head duo.

    I remember Cuvee–it closed just before I moved about 2 blocks away. I never got to eat there :(.
