Keith McNally Defies Puking Kids from Bensonhurst

Keith McNally once said that Morandi would be his last restaurant ever. Well, he lied. And leave it to restaurant monarch McNally to defy the masticated innards of inebriated Brooklyn punks by launching a new business in their midst. The New York Observer sat down with the owner of Balthazar and Pastis to ask him about his forthcoming restaurant Minetta Tavern. He mentions its less-than-ideal location on Macdougal Street between Bleecker and West 3rd, and then elaborates, “It’s the Village of the ’50s and ’60s that’s been out of fashion since Dylan went electric. Weekend nights it’s packed with kids from Bensonhurst throwing up on the sidewalk.” Hey man, as long as your daughter is there, then so are we.
