     A visitors center and food court will be opening at the once glitzy Tavern on the Green restaurant in New York's Central Park.

    The official unveiling was Friday afternoon.

    Visitors will no longer be able to dine on the restaurant's once fancy fare. Instead vendors will supply trendy eats like Turkish tacos, Chinese dumplings and chili sesame noodle salad in the spot where the Tavern's Crystal Room stood.

    The original Tavern on the Green closed its doors on New Year's Eve after 75 years. About three years ago, it was still one of the world's top-grossing restaurants.
