Minetta Tavern was opened in Greenwich Village in 1937. The Tavern was named after the Minetta Brook, which ran southwest from 23rd Street to the Hudson River. <br /><br />Over the course of its long history, the Tavern was frequented by various layabouts and hangers-on including Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Eugene O'Neill, E. E. Cummings, Dylan Thomas, and Joe Gould, as well as by various writers, poets, and pugilists. <br /><br />Since its renovation, Minetta Tavern has best been described as "Parisian steakhouse meets classic New York City tavern." <br /><br />We hope — and believe — that's a somewhat accurate description of the place. <br />
