What does the Carlsbadistan restaurant landscape really need? Well, if you’re retired businessman from Rancho Sante Fe named Bruce Bartlett, then we apparently need a recreation of the Green Dragon Tavern, the tavern where “the nations founding fathers once gathered,” according to a Barbara Henry story in the North County Times.
The “Green Dragon Tavern,” which would be more of a restaurant and a museum than a bar, would go in the long-vacant Hadley’s fruit and nut building on Paseo del Norte. . . Bartlett is proposing to create a row of colonial buildings that would contain 21,281 square feet of interior space. . . One of the structures in the row would be a copy the Green Dragon Tavern, which has been described as the “headquarters of the Revolution,” Bartlett said.
A row of colonial buildings at the beach? Sounds horrifying.
