Minetta Tavern

Keith McNally, who has brought Balthazar, Pastis and Morandi to life, succeeds yet again in his new venture, Minetta Tavern. This fully restored mix of tavern/restaurant was opened this spring. If you are not a model, make reservations; otherwise the bouncer (yes there is a bouncer) will not let you in. The menu is not too extensive, but offers good options, like the lobster salad, bone marrow and a succulent veal chop. Of course, if you look at the dessert menu first (just like us), try the Soufflé, Grand Marnier or Chocolate, both are delicious. It is definitely a place to see and to be seen, but the good food is not forgotten.
