From NY Mag. A restaurant actually opening, not closing:
over its seven-decade existence, Minetta Tavern has attracted post-bout fighters, Beat writers, and not a few curious tourists. As of next week, though, it’ll be a culinary destination, when Keith McNally and his chef-partners Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr reopen it as a meticulously restored 85-seat bistro, vintage murals and photo gallery intact. On the compact menu: a trio of tartares, côte de boeuf for two, and a Grand Marnier soufflé, plus classic and original cocktails showcasing brown spirits (113 Macdougal St., at Minetta Ln.; 212-475-3850).
