Would anyone like to go on a date with me to Minetta Tavern? I’ve heard the rumors that the food at Keith McNally’s latest spot is phenomenally good, and Frank Bruni thought so, giving them a whopping 3 stars. Then my friend Hope, a really tough critic, came into our office and proclaimed it one of the best meals she’s ever had. This from a woman who has eaten at some pretty special places in her lifetime. I REALLY want to go, but there’s just one problem. The dishes that seem to get everyone’s mouth watering are made for two, which is why I need (and of course want) you to share dinner with me.
Here it is, thanks to Kathy Chan for posting these great photos on flickr. The Cote de Boeuf and the Souffle, for you and me. We can add a side of pommes anna and split a nice Bordeaux.
Minetta Tavern: 113 MacDougal at Minetta Lane in the West Village. The website, http://www.minettatavernny.com, isn’t up yet.
