Minetta Tavern

More marvelous sleight of hand from Keith McNally, Minetta Tavern returned to glory a few years ago. The Tavern, which is named for nearby brook that once emptied into the Hudson River, dates back to 1937 and was a favorite haunt of Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Eugene O’Neill, E. E. Cummings, Dylan Thomas, Joe Gould and many other writers. In 2009, to enormous fanfare, McNally dusted off the inviting and cozy space, but the real magic, apparently, is with the meat. “The best steakhouse in the city,” Frank Bruni wrote in the Times, shortly after McNally took over. I’ll have to try it someday. (113 MacDougal St. between Bleecker & W. 3rd Sts. 212-475-3850.)
