Minetta Tavern … go get your Black Label burger

DINING OWL AWARD4th – for casual occasions

When I visited: May 2013

Location: NYC, near Bleecker

Team: Dan Silverman (Head Chef)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Recommended (used to have 1 star)

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 4/5

What to wear: Could go casual

Ambience: Fun, friendly, casual

Course of the meal: Black Label burger

If I could change one thing: Open more often


On a visit to New York a couple of years ago, me and my partner Owl made time to fly over to Bleecker specifically to visit this restaurant as endorsed by Nigella Lawson. Unfortunately we’d picked a day when it wasn’t open, so my first tip would be to check the website first as it isn’t open every day! My second tip would be to get there before opening time (as we did on our second visit, when it WAS thankfully opening, and there were still people queuing outside) and my third tip would be to ORDER THE BLACK LABEL BURGER – it’s amazing.

We also enjoyed a really heavy, indulgent red wine and fries, as well as chocolates for dessert. Mmmm.
