NEW YORK (AP / WCBS 880) – Donald Trump is seeking a deal with New York City to reopen the glittery Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park.

Trump Organization Vice President Ron Lieberman said Thursday that the mega-developer has reached an agreement with the union that represents the Tavern’s former employees.
Trump will now have to reach a deal with the city, which owns the restaurant.
Tavern on the Green closed a year ago after 75 years. It was once one of the world’s top-grossing restaurants.
The city granted Central Park Boathouse operator Dean Poll the right to reopen the restaurant. But Poll was unable to cut a deal with the Hotel and Motel Trades Council.
