Village Voice's Description

This Keith McNally (Pastis, Balthazar) remake of a Village old-timer reverently preserves the louche interior, while switching the menu from Italian-American to French brasserie fare, with an emphasis on meats and, especially, organ meats. Thus the sturdy roasted marrow bones offered with plenty of toasts is one of the restaurant's glories, though so is the microscopic plain omelet that makes one of the best starters. For the culinarily timid, there's a selection of well-turned-out fish, but those wishing to get down with their bad selves will prefer the torpedo of compressed and fried pig foot. You can't go wrong with the burger-but pick the one that's $15, rather than $26. The fries are exceptional, of course, and the bread is from Balthazar, the city's best bakery.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bon Appetit Magazine on 07/21/10

    Pricey hamburgers are usually all style and no substance, but it's difficult to have any beef with the $26 Black Label burger made with prime dry-aged cuts at this hot spot.

    Keith McNally's reborn Minetta is a masterpiece—an old New York saloon, modern steakhouse and celeb haunt all in one. The problem: getting in. (The Black Label Burger is worth it.) [Eater 38 Member]

    If you manage to get a seat, don't miss the $26 Black LabelBurger (and equally loved bone marrow appetizer). And be sure to say hi to Madonna or Gwyneth for us—they could be at the table next to you.

  • The New York Times on 08/27/10

    Handsome bistro, awesome steaks and sides, beautiful customers. There’s a reason the Twitter hashtag is #mcnallywins.

  • nymag on 12/26/10

    Weekend brunch might be your best bet here, for old-world breakfast treats like shirred eggs with black truffles, and a rich black-pudding clafoutis. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
