Minetta Tavern Opens Tomorrow


Diner’s Journal has it that the Minetta Tavern will open tomorrow, and Mimi Sheraton, who attended a preview dinner, has already dropped some praise in the Eater comments: “What we loved were the oxtails and foie gras terrine, the 3 tartars, the grilled veal chop, the stupendous boned pigs' feet and the aligot ... to say nothing of the setting itself which is classic McNally genius and feels as it did about 60 years ago when I was there for the first of many meals.” No word about the $26 burger that has our commenters and the Feed up in arms.
