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 />

"I see a lot of reviews complaining about the Black Label Burger. People say they wish it had cheese or a sauce/ketchup. First of all, if you put ketchup on high quality burgers, you have no business ordering the Black Label Burger. If you appreciate the flavor of good meat and have a good palate, please ignore those other reviews. The dry aged steak cuts used to make the burger are very flavorful, as are the sauteed onions it is topped with. My boyfriend did wish his burger was seasoned slightly more, but he has a heavy hand with salt. He clarified that he wasn't complaining at all, though, and LOVED the burger. We both agreed mine was perfectly seasoned. As to the size, it is a VERY rich burger and, while the diameter might not be huge, it is a taller burger. I would not want it to be any bigger. Now the fries - they are perfectly fried and delicious. This time, we tried to duck hash as an appetizer -- you can't go wrong with something fried in duck fat. Very delicious.
As to service - again, on point. We arrived 30 minutes early and were still seated right away, even though there were people waiting (probably without reservations). Our server was great and gave us the right amount of attention - not too much, not too little.
We left very happy. This was not my first BLB and it won't be my last :)"

The surreal atmosphere of this awe-inspiring restaurant in the Meatpacking district of Manhattan<br />combines the serenity of Asia with the flamboyance of 16th century Paris. The menu features fanciful interpretations of Chinese dishes and delights even the most discriminating palates.<br /><br />

Modeled after an Italian train station, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's OTTO is located on 8th Street, in the historic One Fifth Avenue building. Serving classic Italian pizzas and pastas, a large selection of house-cured meats, Italian and local cheeses, Artisanal Gelato, and boasting a 750+ all-Italian wine list, OTTO has become a destination for New York diners as well as a neighborhood hot spot.

"This is a place that I'll always come back to - almost everything is easily shared and you can't beat the price for the quality."

Husband-and-wife co-owners Michael Susy Glick welcome you to their contemporary steakhouse. Conveniently located only two blocks from the 92nd Street Y, Parlor Steakhouse features the type of elegant, stylish interior that Upper East Side residents have long desired in their neighborhood. Both the restaurant’s menu and its décor appeal to a broad range of diners: from young couples meeting for a drink and solo guests grabbing a casual dinner at the bar, to foursomes and business diners looking for a delicious meal in an attractive setting. Parlor Steakhouse’s menu offers items at many price points and encompasses both steakhouse classics and a wide range of creative preparations, particularly seafood dishes, courtesy of Executive Chef Lucas Billheimer, a veteran of Lure Fishbar (and Park Avenue Café). What’s more, Parlor Steakhouse features a 40-seat private event room downstairs that includes its own bar and a working fireplace. We look forward to seeing you soon.
