TAVERN ON THE GREEN (MANHATTAN) Review — Every restaurant has its off nights, but in my experience they are standard at Tavern on the Green. One recent night, we waited 40 minutes after placing our order before any food arrived. The captain acted as if he were bestowing a favor each time he honored us with his presence, and the waiters hardly deigned to glance our way.
