Be'spanxed, stilleto'd (ok, not LeBoutins, but painted to look like 'em by my man on 3rd Ave.), glossed, flossed, and sheened, I marched in wearing a devastating red toga dress and bling. Perhaps I also spritzed "Glow" perfume, which is named after my favorite Rick James song. The vibe is speakeasy, but that's OK because that's also glamorous. Was meeting a recently divorced older man (my age, is a lady's privelidge), but that's not worth mentioning (no second date on the horizon, honey.) I had one sen-sational meal: small beet salad (YUM - we've had this before, but this was just divine), and when I read the name of the entree I did not even get to the description. The menu closed and I ordered another Bronx cocktail in anticipation. The name you may ask? Pasta Za Za. Which as it turns out was fresh pasta with pancetta, sage, parmesan, and a fried egg. I could have done a can-can when I tasted it! Love, if only a Beano enducement after the beets. I will be back!

We luckily got a 7pm reservation. It has an old time NYC speakeasy vibe, low ceilings and cosy, but is bigger than it looks. With black & white tiled floors and dark furniture, it very Mad Men, but not overdone. I wasn't sure about ordering the Black Label burger because it seemed too big, but my husband persuaded me, said it was the best thing ever. It was so very delicious. several kinds of beef blended to perfection. It comes with perfectly sautéed onions and crispy frittes. Follow the advice of those that say eat it as is--no ketchup, mustard or any sauce. The beef quality and seasoning is perfect without it. We also had a side of thin, sautéed carrots which were delectable. Good wine, VERY good soufflé, and a great waitress. We were deliciously stuffed when we left. This is a great date place, or for a small group. If you're visiting, try to book a table. While not cheap it is certainly not the most expensive place in town either.

My wife and I recently had lunch at Minetta'sTavern.My wife and her family had lived in the village during the 70's and 80's and frequented Minetta's during those years.It is with that history in mind that I write this review. We found the menu limited and effete.We found the service pretentious and the food just fair and expensive.It was a major disappointment given our memories of the old tavern.I know things change but this change was not for the better.Save your money.New York offers you far more worthwhile choices.

My buddy and I are rather huge burger aficionados and we felt that the Black Label Burger was worth every penny.

My wife & I walked in on a Friday evening at 7pm without a reservation. We were seated quickly at a great table. The place was wonderful, our waitress was knoledgeable and made us feel great. The food was amazing every step of the way including presentation. We had the steak for two. They bring it out for you to see after its been cooked before they cut it. We will be back as often as possible!

I drank the kool-aid and wanted to believe the hype. No more. A shockingly poor meal, made even more shocking given the average price of $80 to $100 a person. The putative "revelatory" burger was no revelation. The much lauded strip steak was surprisingly tough. The frites were limp. It's sad--and unacceptable, especially at these prices and with the great hype about the restaurant--that the only items that everyone at my table were satisfied with were the desserts and one side item.
