Effective Thursday, January 1st, 2009, Caffé on the Green will cease operations and will not reopen at this location. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the New York City of Department of Parks, has decided to prematurely terminate our license agreement unjustifiably and without cause.
In this time of such high financial uncertainty, the city and its lack of responsible judgment and shortsightedness, has placed our employees into an uncertain and stressful position, facing unemployment, and the loss of their future pension and health care benefits.
Caffe on the Green
Caffé will be relocating locally, and hopes to be up and running again soon with our present family of staff. Our website, Caffeonthegreen.com, will always be available and will keep you posted on our future plans.
Previously: Caffe owes lots of green
Update: Crain's reports that the operator of World's Fair Marina Restaurant is taking over the venture.
