He has purchase the venerable old Greenwich Village institution “The MINETTA TAVERN” on Macdougald Street at the corner of Minetta Lane. Mr. McNally will be opening the Minetta Tavern sometime in the early part of 2009 with Executive Chefs RIAD NASIR and Lee Hansen who both helped Keith open and operate Balthazar, Pastis, and Schiller’s. The food is supposed to be Classic French.
