NEW YORK -- Two years after the glitzy Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park closed, New York City officials are looking to open a scaled-down version.

Tavern on the Green generated $38 million a year in revenues before the recession. It closed on New Year's Day 2010.

The city granted a license to run the restaurant to Dean Poll, who operates the Loeb Boathouse restaurant along the Central Park lake. But Poll was unable to reach an agreement with the union that represents former Tavern employees.

The Post says the new plan would reduce the restaurant's indoor space from 22,000 square feet to just over 10,000 square feet.
