Cool Places to Eat in NEW YORK

Here are three “GREAT” places to go to eat in Downtown Manhattan;El Quijote at

the famed Chelsea Hotel

on West 23 rd Street for great Lobsters and Paella. The bar is

a great place to have a couple Great Cocktails as the ambiance
is Cool of Another Era Tacky. “You gotta Love IT!!”
Pearl Oyster Bar on Cornelia Street in The Village makes thee
BEST LOBSTER ROLLS in New York, even Maine. The
New England Clam Chowder is tasty as well.
Raoul’s for our money is the Coolest, Hippest, Best All Around French Bistro in New York.
The food is really good, Classic Bistro Fare. The ambiance is Cool as Hell and the Music they
play, is the Best in the City. Raoul’s is on Prince Street near Sullivan in Soho. “It’s Great!!!!”






MINETTA TAVERN, Macdougal Street at Minetta Lane, Greenwich Village, New York …    Without Question the Coolest Restaurant in Town … This great old Greenwich Village Bar / Restaurant was the In-Spot of Prize Fighters, Newsmen, Sports Fihures, and the Downtown Elite way back in the 30s & 40s when the affable Eddy Minetta rant the joint. For the past 30 years or so, Minetta Tavern was run quietly and devoid of any fanfare by a string of owner who never did very much with the place. The Master Restaurantuer KEITH McNALLY got his hands on the place, kept everything more-or-less the same (allof the wonderful old decor was intact). Keith spruced the place up a bit, hired a couple great chefs, lent his Magic Touch and the place has been packed ever since. A major New York Celebrity Haunt as all of Keith’s restaurants are, Minetta Tavern is the coolest place in town. Famed for its wonderful decor, massive Steaks done French Style, Marrow Bones, and Burgers, The Black Label Burger and the Minetta Burger .. Minetta Tavern can’t be beat.
