The last word for them has not yet been spoken Loeb Boathouse. The restaurant overlooks the pond of New York’s green lung, the setting for many films and TV series Harry, this is Sally on Sex and the City, had to close on October 17th due to unbearable costs, All 163 employees were out of work, but a mysterious billionaire set out to save the historic Central Park restaurant from closure. The secret donor – it seems after reading an article about the upcoming closure – put it on the table a $6 million bid to save the restaurantwhich should now remain open.
The manager Dean Poll had decided to throw in the towel in the face of skyrocketing costs: “It’s a difficult place to manage because of its location, seasonality, accessibility and cost,” he explained, citing the fact that the place isn’t even accessible by car. The Long Island-born restaurateur, known for saving Gallagher’s Steakhouse from closing in 2013, took over the Boathouse in 2000 but recently declared he had no choice but to close, making up for the skyrocketing food prices and labor costs responsible for it. Now, however, the anonymous billionaire has approached Poll with a deal to fund the renovation of the iconic property and keep it open as part of his current deal with the city.
