Minetta Tavern Burger: Done Making Fancy Burgers
Minetta Tavern burger inventors are also done with fancy burgers
On the heels of burger popularizer April Bloomfield declaring she’s done serving burgers at new restaurants, chefs Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr say they’re sick of making a big deal out of burgers, too. The duo — Keith McNally empire alums credited with making the legendary Minetta Tavern burger — will still be offering a burger at their new Tribeca bistro Frenchette, but don’t expect anything fancy. It will be “something simpler, cheaper, and not so scene-stealing,” Grub Street writes. People are too obsessed with burgers now, Hanson says: “There was a time where the burger was kind of this sidekick, and we kind of want to put it back there.” Frenchette is expected to open in October.
