The Minetta Tavern on MacDougal is undergoing major renovation by a new owner. Word has it that he is keeping the interior intact, and only changing the menu -- a good thing. A long time hangout for the '50s beats and then the '60s NYC showbiz and literary crowd, Minetta Tavern is classic Greenwich Village. One things for sure, the photos that lined Minetta's walls are already gone, packed up and relocated with the old owner. So here they are, photographed during Christmas, 07. The beautiful Eva Marie Saint, fresh from her role in On The Waterfront.
Soupy Sales and Minetta's owner.
