In the heart of Central Park, Tavern on the Green glimmers. The restaurant, which has long been a tourist attraction, scaled back its size, opting for a more intimate dining experience, when it reopened under the tutelage of chef Katy Sparks and owners Jim Caiola and David Salama. During restaurant week, the eatery is offering both a lunch and dinner pre fixe, as well as a glorious view of the park and surrounding area. Nab a table in the former Crystal Room and take in the atmosphere over lunch or dinner. Central Park W., New York, 212-877-8684, tavernonthegreen.com
