Minetta Tavern, a watering hole for New York's literary, show business and govt. power personalities since the 1930s is set to reopen March 9. The restaurant, under the new ownership of Keith McNally, will feature a French bistro menu. The joint has been lovingly restored, right down to the window lettering above (and all the old framed photos inside!), sourced from a photo of the original facade. On a block full of frat boys and motorcyles, this level of class is welcome!
