NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The landmark Tavern on the Green in Central Park, shuttered since 2010, is reopening later this month.

The glitzy restaurant has undergone a major rehabilitation and will reopen April 24 for dinner. Lunch and brunch menus will be launched in May for the Mother’s Day weekend.

New owners Philadelphia restaurateurs Jim Caiola and David Salama had planned to open last November, but construction and other problems delayed the opening.

Tavern on the Green closed after 75 years and was once one of the world’s top-grossing restaurants. For a time, the site was used as a visitor’s center and food court.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable or by telephone.
