Visited the Minetta Tavern for its burger, rumoured to be the best in the world. It was pretty good but way overrated. I found it to be a bit small too. We also ordered oysters for starter, average dish and too small and a prawn...More

We went to this quaint, historic and appealing restaurant to partake of their famous burger. Although the restaurant is planted in the heart of the West Village, there was a much different welcoming ambiance. It was peppered with the air of privilege and superiority. The...More

Have dined here for both lunch and dinner. Their Black Label burger is one of the best in the City. The Roasted Bone Marrow is a treat all by itself.

Had lunch there recently, have eaten here dozens of times, always solid. Service can be problematic but its worth it. Two word - Black Label -burger... Go for brunch that's always a treat - have a different experience sit at the bar.

We were here on a Saturday at noon-hour. Pretty famous spot and always wanted to try this, especially after Tony Bourdain's burger plug. Service was adequate and friendly. We always had to ask for drinks instead of being offered or sold to us. Pleasant server...More

Great food, great service and a cool environment. My only complaint would be how close the tables are to each other. When you have to move the table to get out to use the facilities, the tables are just a little to close together. Nothing...More

Sometimes all you really want is a damn good hamburger and a high quality whiskey. Sometimes you just want to whine about where to get one or the other. Let me save you some trouble - go to Minetta Tavern. It is really just that...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
