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.
