Minetta Tavern Bistro | Greenwich Village
113 MacDougal Street (bet. Bleecker & W 3rd St)
Notes: The Black Label Burger = the best burger anywhere. Period. Hands-down. And please, no cheese, no ketchup. You’ll spoil the ridiculously splendid dry-aged flavor. The caramelized onions are all you need. If you’re a fan of roasted bone marrow, don’t miss the hors d’oeuvre portion served with toasted baguette slices and shallot confit. Casual, fun atmosphere, tough reservation. The steaks are renowned, and don’t leave without digging your spoon into a chocolate soufflé. Ethereal, yet powerful depth of chocolate flavor, which are usually mutually exclusive.
